For the first time since 9/11, Dems blasted wingnuts. Thank you Obama.
Obama comes along and then whoa... totally different Democratic party. I couldn't even imagine the Dems rallying together to advocate peaceful negotiation with "terrorist" states. For the first time since Bill Clinton was Prez, we politically outmaneuvered Republicans. We actually stuck together with one voice.

This is a complete about-face from before the Obama era. From 9/11/01 until yesterday, the Democrats meekly lost any argument Israel-related with Republicans. The media used to mercilessly hound anyone who wanted to "negotiate with terrorists." Obama wouldn't have it; he fired with all his guns, evoking names like Kennedy and Roosevelt. The party followed Obama's lead. By evening, the MSM was openly mocking Bush and McCain (Tweety lol).

It feels so good to destroy the Republicans on foreign policy. This is the kind of change I've been dreaming of.

I'm donating another $50 right now because he's the real deal, folks.

11. Obama owned the day
There was a considerable media build-up to Obama's response to bush*s attack/smear. Obama gave speech, post speech media was almost entirely on how bush* and McCain thought that this would be a winning smear for them, but Obama handled it so well that he came out a winner threefold.

Good, good media day. :)

9. Yup. He's getting a donation from me for this too.
It feels good to have a tough, nimble fighter for a nominee.

10. We have Dr. Dean to thank as well. I am forever grateful to
that man for dragging us back to sane path and away from the McAullife way of losing. It really does feel good to be a Democrat. Damn, we have really endured a nightmare for the last decade.

14. Many Dems and progressive journalists have been saying the right things for years
More people are just starting to listen and open their eyes and ears. A combo of the economy, never ending war, nothing else getting better in the country, and the election cycle rolling around and finally the country is waking up. I don't think it's just Obama's doing, and I say that as someone who likes him and thinks he'll make a great leader. He's one piece of many in motion.
