Most of the Field Organizers as well as our Regional Field Director will leave town in the next few days, returning to their homes. But what an impact they had in Michigan. One of the most striking victories for our group was the […]

Eclectablog the Plumber and Sarah Palin

Read it HERE. In the process of gathering the quotes, I had a couple of interesting email conversations and there was one, in particular, that I found fascinating. It […]

Obama Leads by Example – Pushing ‘Til the End!

Seven more days. I woke with a sinus headache and the sniffles this morning – bound to be a cold coming on. Lost of people at the Campaign for Change headquarters pulling long shifts and looking a bit blearly. Temps dropping into the 30s this week with snow in the forecast.

Morally and Intellectually Slothful People

Christopher Hitchens nails it: This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated […]
