"Speaking as a private individual, I would not vote for John McCain under any circumstances," said James Dobson, founder of the Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family as well as the Focus Action cultural action organization set up specifically to provide a platform for informing and rallying constituents....

[T]he McCain Feingold Bill kept us from telling the truth right before elections … and there are a lot of other things. He's not in favor of traditional marriage, and I pray that we won't get stuck with him," Dobson said.
Brilliant.

Senator Brownback would seem to be right in Dobson's wheelhouse. That's not a winning candidate though.

I wonder how Dobson feels about Mormons??

I bet Dobson likes the Mitt Romney style Mormon

WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Barack Obama said Tuesday he is taking the initial step in a presidential bid that could make him the nation's first black to occupy the White House.

Obama announced on his Web site, www.barackobama.com, that he was filing a presidential exploratory committee. In a video on his exploratory committee web site, Obama said, "On February 10th, at the end of these discussions, in my home state of Illinois, I'll share my plans with my friends, neighbors and fellow Americans."

"I certainly didn't expect to find myself in this position a year ago," Obama said in a video posting. "I've been struck by how hungry we all are for a different kind of politics. So I've spent some time thinking about how I could best advance the cause of change and progress that we so desperately need."

At the Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner in Richmond. I've gone every year since 2003 and met John Kerry (twice), John Edwards, Wesley Clark, Al Sharpton, and Joe Biden.

I'm volunteering so I get in free, otherwise it's $165 for regular people and $50 for students.

I could hook you up, but there are a limited number of spots as it is, and I'm trying to get YDs from school in first. However I'm sure you could show up and sneak in, that's what my parents do every year

Obama introduces bill to cap number of US troops in Iraq

Jan 18 3:59 PM US/Eastern





Democratic Senator Barack Obama, a likely presidential contender, introduced legislation that would cap the number of US troops in Iraq, joining a roiling debate over President George W. Bush's new war strategy.

Speaking on the floor of the Senate, Obama said his plan would also call for the gradual redeployment of US troops from the region "within two to four months."

"This measure would stop the escalation of the war in Iraq," he said, adding that "it's my belief that simply opposing the surge is not enough."

Hillary

Nominating her would probably be the biggest mistake the Democrats could make.
