One trembling teen-ager handed Obama a cell phone and asked him to say hello to her friend Hillary, a big Obama fan. "Hi Hillary!" Obama said with a mischevous grin, telling the crowd: "And she supports me,"
"Oh, this isn't Hillary Clinton? Oh, Hillary Van Dyke," he deadpanned. "Nice to meet you! Thanks for your support."
Joe it's great you've joined the campaign! It's time for change to come to South Florida.
Joe would be a progressive leader in Congress and a victory by him would start a seachange on Cuba policy and an end to Republican control in the area.
This race offers us the opportunity to replace someone with a 15% rating on the environment from LCV with someone who will defend the Everglades in the district. We can replace someone who voted against health care for children with someone who will vote the right way.
Let's elect Joe, so we can have people who will stand with the netroots over corporate insiders.
There's a big movement here to elect "responsible growth" candidates, especially on county commissions. Democrats who advocated these policies have picked up several seats on once very Conservative Venice and Sarasota commissions, as well as my home county in central Florida (1st Democrat and very pro-environment in a very long time). People are very tired of all the growth which is hurting our real estate markets and causing inflation.
Mario Diaz-Balart got a 15% rating from LCV in a district that represents the Everglades. This is something we need to turn around.
I did want to comment on your thing about Obama using Republican speech. He was actually opposing Republican ideas on trade and free enterprise when he did that earlier. He was saying he believes in that idea, but in fact that's not what's happening in America right now, that's not what the Republican Party is standing up for.
