10. we will reap the whirlwind from Bush years
it will be an ugly time etven if most in the country agreed with the choice. Stocks, 401k, federal budget, 2 wars plus terrorists gathering....there is much work to be done, and I'm sick of partisan.

I want Obama to read resumes for positions in his cabinet without regard to R, D, or I. He needs the best minds on each issue. I want moderates. No idealogues on either side.

He is going to be scape goated big time by the establishment and the far right as soon as things continue to unravel for a time under his administration as they undoubtedly will.

But we need to fight for him to get in there and be given a chance.

I CANNOT OVERESTIMATE the importance conceptually for a bunch of warmongering, selfish Americans to vote in a guy named Barack Obama. That all by itself sets us in the right direction and gives this nation a fighting chance.
