If you's like to participate in a DU Barack Obama Group, please post here.
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 11:45 AM by DeepModem Mom
First, I'm excited about Obama's possible candidacy, and would like to see him run for President. I think he's a winner! I, however, am open and positive toward other candidates. If a stronger partisan here would like to spearhead this effort, I would welcome that.

We need ten responses to this thread by donating DU members WHO AGREE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GROUP, in order to submit a request to the administrators. We also need a mission statement to submit.

I think it would be a good idea, if, when you respond, you consider offering suggestions for the Barack Obama Group's mission statement. (Or if someone would like to submit a draft, please do!) I've looked at all other candidate's mission statements, and one decision appears to be whether to welcome only Obama supporters, creating a "safer" environment for discussion, or whether to be open to non-supporters. The mission statements are a brief paragraph or two in length, and simply stated.

Thanks for your consideration!


Senator Barack Obama (D., IL)

3. I don't support him for '08....BUT
I do think he and his supporters deserve a seperate forum.

5. I would like to participate.
My attitude toward his candidacy right now is pretty much the same as yours, DeepModemMom.

We could say, in the mission statement, something about how the group is for DU'ers who are open to and positive about the idea of his candidacy, but not necessarily committed to him yet in the primary.

I don't see a purpose for having a separate group if it's open to anybody. Might as well just keep posting in the general political threads if we want to get in arguments with all the naysayers.

so I guess I don't count!

29. I just came back to do an Obama servin' kick
and you already made it.

WooHoo DMM. Great work. Now let's hope that no circular firing squads form in this forum and that the posters be as reasonable and wise as the person for whom it's dedicated.

Yup I am a totally deluded optimist despite it all.

31. Draft mission statement for DU Barack Obama Group.
Welcome to the DU Barack Obama Group

The mission of the Barack Obama Group is to discuss this rising star in the Democratic Party and to share news and information about his life, career and political future. DUers who are supporters of Senator Obama for President, or have a positive view of the Senator and are open to an Obama candidacy in 2008 are welcome.

I like the phrase ...positive view of the Senator....which should discourage negative statements like those running crazy through the GD threads.

Thanks DeepModem Mom :hi:

51. No -- lucky you!
About the Forum: the proposal, I think, will be submitted to the admins tonight, after everyone's had today to respond to the mission statement. Then I don't know what happens after the proposal is submitted, but, I expect, we'll soon know. Thanks again for your enthusiastic support!
