42. All the state representatives are responsible to the people in their states.
That is how it is and always has been, and how it should be for the most part. I did not vote for him to go to the Senate and represent the interest of the shop owners in lower Manhattan.

About health care, that is an important issue for some people, including me, but I know where he stands on it because I talked to him. But it is not THE issue that most people are eager to hear about today. The topic of today is the war, and Barack being the one person running (besides Kucinich) that was against it from the beginning is speaking on that issue. It is the cry for action that he has heard and is addressing. As things progress through what looks to be a very long year, he will go on to speak of other issues in depth. But right now the people want to hear someone say that this war is wrong and we have to end it. Hope is being called for, and he is trying to give it, to make us feel like we can make a difference.
