Reason

Why I'm voting and walking and calling and writing for Obama/Warner/RhymesWithSeder. The end of a series:

"I like your pin. I'm voting for him. No more Republicans for me. I'm telling you, I've been to Viet Nam, Desert Storm, and the present conflict, and 'Nam was well run compared to what we're doing now."

- Army man on Amtrak yesterday.

Iraq. Afganistan. Katrina. Darfur. Wall Street. Mortgage Crises. Remember how they made it tougher for people to get out from under predatory lending and credit cards? Bankruptcies are only available for the rich. Mess after mess after mess. McCain is complicit in every one. So is Wolf. Gilmore had his own issues here in VA.

We need Obama and Biden, Warner and RhymesWithSeder. Obama and Biden KNOW how tough it is out there for families. They've lived it. Warner knows how to take a budget deficit and turn it into a budget surplus. And RhymesWithSeder has a wealth of health care knowledge.

So that's why I'm voting and working and walking and calling for the Blue team. Anything else would be unreasonable.

Can a sister get an "Amen"? Amen! Thanks for this series, Liz. And for all you're doing to turn this purple state true Blue.

I'm late to the reason series but I love them. I was thrilled to see that big ol' non-blue state Ohio has McCain with just a small lead over Obama. It gives me hope. Unfortunately, there was proof that people will still vote with their party even if they don't agree because all the percentages for questions fell to Obama.

Go Liz!! My beloved came back from Chicago with Obama T-shirts, but they'd run out of bumber stickers and car magnets, sadly...

He's now filling out his absentee ballot application.
