September 7, 2008

The general election for president of the United States is only two months away.

On August 28th, 2008 Senator Barack Obama defined himself clearly to an audience of 80,000 and television viewers of over 38 million. Senator Obama took concrete steps to describe what he stands for, beyond just a promise of change. More than a promise, Obama will be able to deliver the change we are looking for in mainstream America: the economy, health care for all, lower taxes for working class Americans, quality education for young Americans who are willing to give back to the community, recognition of the need to end America's dependence on foreign oil, and preservation of woman's right to choose. Senator Obama is the most talented and visible civil rights politician that we have in America today, dedicating himself to fighting for the rights of each and every American.

Senator McCain is on record for voting against many of the steps needed to affect positive change in this nation 90% of the time. With his selection of a woman running mate, it clearly shows that he intends to compete hard. But this election is not about Gov. Sara Palin, it's about the issues. Although she is a fresh new face in a party that's dying for one, Senator McCain came to the conclusion that the experience issue doesn't matter to the people. By selecting Gov. Palin, McCain is making a calculated move to garner votes from Hillary Clinton's undecided women voters. But what I urge women voters to remember is that while Hillary Clinton dedicated herself to fighting fo a woman's rights, Gov. Palin has a record of standing against them. Gov. Palin's opposition to abortion will take our country a step back to the Roe v. Wade days. McCain's selection of Gov. Palin as his running mate gives him a chance to claim the mantle, but keep in mind that just because he is willing to put a woman on the ticket, does not mean that he nor Gov Palin have a woman's best interests at heart.

Like you, I was among the 38 million glued to my television to watch him deliver his historic acceptance speech. I ask you to transform your enthusiasm into: vote for OBAMA-BIDEN.
