That Barrage of Second Guessing of Clinton Is DemocracyI was confused when I read the article to come in this morning's Washington Post that bemoaned "a barrage of second-guessing Friday from supporters" aimed at Hillary Clinton. What, I wondered, would a barrage of second-guessing look like? Then I realized exactly what it would look like: It would look like democracy. Much to the dismay of Washington D.C. insiders (including writers for the Washington Post) who celebrate America's power elites, it isn't enough for Hillary Clinton to just gather together a collection of consultants, fundraisers and lobbyists and plow her way through to the Democratic presidential nomination. Hillary Clinton has to deal with the little people, the American people, We The Activists who care enough to vote. No multimillion dollar series of television advertisements is going to buy us off. If Hillary Clinton wants to win, she had better start paying attention to the "second-guessing" coming from the progressive grassroots. If she had listened to our "barrage of second-guessing" back in 2002, she wouldn't have made that tragic vote in favor of starting a war in Iraq.
While We Breathe, We Will Hope! Barack Obama for President in 2012 (bumper sticker)
GOP Elephant and Truth bumper sticker
Most members of the Democratic Party in America are pretty disappointing, aren't they? It's about time we elected some Kick-Ass Democrats!
This red and white bumper sticker makes the dramatic statement: Don't make choice a crime. If you're pro-choice, the time to speak up is now, before the Republicans take your reproductive choice away.
This political campaign magnet will be a collector's item because it captures the political moment perfectly. I like Obama, but is America ready for a President who knows the entire alphabet?
