Barack Obama Focuses On Restoring the ConstitutionWhy support Barack Obama for President in particular? Here's one reason I can think of off the top of my head - a really big reason: The Constitution. Since Chris Dodd dropped out of the presidential race, Barack Obama has been the only candidate I've heard talk about restoring the constitutional freedoms that have been lost under the rotten presidency of George W. Bush At a rally in Columbus, Ohio this morning, Barack Obama made the following promise:
"We will lead by having the highest standards, by setting an example of human rights and civil rights, due process and rule of law, which is why I will close Guantanamo. I will restore habeas corpus. And we will end torture and rendition because you will have elected a president who has taught the Constitution and believes in the Constitution and will obey the Constitution of the United States of America."In recent weeks, words like these have become more and more common in Barack Obama's speeches. It seems that Obama is setting up one important foundation of his experience as a campaign asset: His experience as a professor in constitutional law. I just don't hear John McCain, or Hillary Clinton for that matter, talk about the need to restore constitutional rights in the way that Barack Obama does. It's no wonder that Senator Dodd chose Barack Obama to endorse. It's no wonder that lovers of the Constitution choose Obama.
