The Final Stretch

The debates are over and I have to say, from my vantage point, it was Obama in straight sets. He looked more presidential, he sounded more presidential, he spoke to the issues that are affecting me and my family, and he had the good sense to pick a running mate who could actually do the job of president. The clear choice in my mind.

But folks, I leave it to you. You've heard them both. Get out there and vote. That is the great part of Democracy. You get to make a choice. You know mine. If you want to share yours, the comment section is there for the using.

Well, it turns out that Bob the builder...I mean Joe the plumber is not only a registered Republican that voted in his primary (hardly undecided) and spouts McSame talking points, but he is also a tax cheat! Check out the Daily Kos on this.

Also, he has no license. See MSNBC.

I have to agree with you T-Dude. I just don't feel like I can vote the McCain/Palin ticket.

Joe the Plumber looks a little familiar. I wonder if he's done a little acting. He reminds me of the guy that played in that 'Swat' movie, where most of the police were corrupt.

I'm not a betting man, but this is one time I'd confidently wager that Obama will win.

Dear Anonymous,

My wife happens to be anti-abortion. She is also pro-choice.

It is unfortunate that you have downed the right-wing Kool-Ade with both hands and are unable to understand that the abortion issue is just one of those wedge issues the Republicans identified nearly 30 years ago as one they could use to divide the country.

As Sen. Obama has said. While we may not be able to agree on whether or not a woman should have a choice in the matter of abortion, certainly we can agree that reducing unwanted pregnancy is a good thing.

I implore you. Quit living in the past. Denounce the "us versus them" mentality and remember that we are all American's. Our progress depends not on beating the drum of absolutes and intolerance but instead on working together to find common ground.

That is one of the many reasons I'm supporting Obama, because that is what he believes in, finding common ground and working together to make a better country and better future.
