On to Virginia: Raising Kaine endorses Barack Obama
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Thu Feb-07-08 09:52 AM by FLDem5

While it's no secret that there are a number of Barack Obama supporters on this website, this support has been unofficial. Until now.

Raising Kaine is now officially endorsing Barack Obama for President and encourages all Virginians to vote for him in the Commonwealth's presidential primary this Tuesday, February 12, 2008. This endorsement is based on the unanimous support among the Raising Kaine editors as well as overwhelming support from our community.

All of us are supporting Obama for different reasons, whether it's his strong consistent position against the war, his progressive stance on immigration, his strong pro-choice record, his devotion to civil rights and liberties, his strong cross-over appeal to independents and disaffected Republicans (especially in Virginia), his ability to unite the country, or something else about his wisdom, progressive positions, or character.

However, all of these reasons thread into one key theme: change. Barack Obama is our best hope for moving the country and the world in a new direction, past the partisan bickering and adherence to the "conventional wisdom" way of thinking.

Interesting tidbit there: ;jsessionid=C0A9B7FAB29EF25D49B171EBB9F0B76C?diaryId=12727

If you read the Washington Post this morning /... You will see that Hillary plans to focus her efforts in Prince William County and Loudoun County.
What her campaign doesn't know is that Barack Obama has been endorsed by many of our local political leaders including State Senator Toddy Puller, State Delegate Paul Nichols and the Chair of the PWC Dem. Committee, Pete Frisbie.

What her campaign doesn't know is that the grassroots organization for Barack Obama in Prince William is truly an army now. We have a volunteer base of several hundred deep that have been working and meeting for weeks and yes, even months to get out the vote for Barack.

What her campaign doesn't know is that the volunteer base has unmatched energy and enthusiasm for our next President- Barack Obama. I want to reiterate that these are residents of Prince William who vote here and many are actively involved in the process for the first time.
