Hillary Is Receptive and Responsive to North Carolina Voters

Although NC is a late participant in the primary process, North Carolinians desire to have their particular concerns addressed before votes are cast on 6 May. The population of this state has exploded, and trade agreements have adversely impacted many of this state's industries. Moreover, the state has a high rate of home foreclosures. These are just a few of the problems for which NC voters are seeking solutions. But only one candidate will hear and understand them.
This candidate is Hillary Clinton, who has launched an unprecedented advertising campaign in NC.
Hillary is not only prepared to listen; she is prepared to offer real solutions to the real problems experienced by real people. And no, she will not force North Carolinians to endure a commercial recycled from the New Hampshire primary. Obama, however, will, and he will make the same hackneyed promises to North Carolinians that he made to voters in New Hampshire last winter. Change, I guess, will be xeroxed, even if it is at the expense of local contingencies and current events.
Hillary, on the other hand, will answer questions submitted by North Carolinians to her website, NCAskMe.com. And she intends to respond to each and every question. In fact, she already has. A volunteer in Charlotte, North Carolina, for Hillary Clinton, I have telephoned NC voters on Hillary's behalf, and I have had the opportunity to explain how Hillary's various proposals will address voters' everyday concerns, whether these concerns involve health care, the costs of prescription drugs, the war in Iraq, funding for VA hospitals, Bush's war on science, Hillary's commitment to reform our trade agreements or Hillary's plan to stem home foreclosures. The experience is quite satisfying, especially when I manage to convince an Obama supporter or a registered Republican that Hillary is the candidate who will listen, lead and respond.
Yes, the telephone calls are challenging, for one must read the voters' questions and research answers before establishing contact. But one learns an immense amount in the process: not only does one discover that Hillary is the candidate who is campaigning on real solutions and not empty rhetoric; one learns that voters are seeking a politician who has a genuine penchant for public service. And Hillary is demonstrating this commitment to constituent service to North Carolina voters, which explains why Tarheels will nominate Hillary to be the Democratic nominee on 6 May.
Eat your heart out, Obamabots. But remember to submit your questions, comments and concerns to NCAskMe.com. For Hillary will offer a personal response to your question that can never be read from a teleprompter during some impersonal speech in a large, anonymous venue. And Hillary, by the way, will attend the debate to occur in North Carolina on 27 APR. Will Obama, or will he continue to ignore the voters of NC?
