Obama’s victory speech in Iowa

With a few lines repeated from his amazing speech at the last Democratic convention, Barack Obama shows there’s value in really inspiring voters, rather than treating them/us like the means to an end.  It reminds me that it is much more satisfying to vote for someone than against others or their party.

  1. Obama is definitely an inspiring figure. What are your thoughts on John Edwards’ sudden about face?.

    Kenn says: Wouldn’t it be amazing if health-care reform was the ballot issue in the States? I would pick either Obama or Edwards over Clinton and, with Obama and Clinton the novelty candidates as ‘firsts’, I still like Obama’s optimism.

  2. Agreed. Obama has a little more of a progressive edge than Hillary for certain.

    I wanted you to know that before when I poo-pooed your jump to the Greens, it wasn’t anything personal, but a little childish, even.

    I like the Greens on the majority of issues, and really wish there was talk of some sort of progressive coalition in the works. Sadly, I think both parties have too much pride. There are some major problems with this country, and NDPers and Greens seem to be the only ones with a willingness for major change.

    Kenn says: I don’t disagree, of course, but I think J.L. feels he has too much to lose should he take a bold step towards shifting part of the tax burden to polluters (including individual consumers, within reason).

  3. Absolutely. Carbon tax is a definite must. Maybe Jack will realize that the new PR tactics aren’t working and that we are stuck in the polls because of his lack of willingness to take a stand on issues that really matter. Bank fees be damned.
