Canvassing in Iowacarolwood

Mon, 05 Nov 2007 21:08:23 +0000

Sunshine on my navy colored Obama shirt creates just the right temperature.  November or not, forgotten gloves are no big deal.  My newspaper journalist buddy Chris and I set out with maps in hand, for a South End neighborhood of an Iowa city. Our targets are walled to the east by a huge grain processing plant.  A tidy […](image)

The natives are restless. There’s been an online battle waged among Obama supporters over whether or not African American pastor/gospel singer Donnie McClurkin should be allowed to perform in South Carolina concerts supporting the Obama campaign. The reverend is a “former gay” who believes God can — and should — cure homosexuals of their ills. […](image)

Canvassing in CD6: Corte Madera, CA. October 13. It is 2pm on a sun-drenched Saturday afternoon and CD 6 coordinator Lance Iuoye is sitting at a picnic table in the town park, checking over canvassing forms with the last returning teams of Barack Obama volunteers. “Turn the Page on Iraq,” a national canvassing day, is […](image)

a shift, perhaps?boatsie

Is it just me? An illusion? Or are some of you also sensing an ever so slight shift in the political current; dare I suggest detecting a miniscule tear in the tightly constructed, intricately oiled veneer of the sheer perfection of the Hillary Clinton roll out? Have you noticed anything? Tidbits here, there, trickling into […](image)

Pundits, Pollsters and Politics: Missing the Mark?lindahansen

Wed, 10 Oct 2007 19:20:41 +0000

Prevailing wisdom: This is a campaign and a candidate doomed to failure. HRC is inevitable. It’s all over. Done. Nice try, but pack up your bags and go home. Maybe you just had to be there. Rock Hill, South Carolina, Saturday October 6th. Over two thousand people hopped aboard the O Train. It was quite […](image)

I received a letter from my liberal Senator Barbara Boxer the other day, asking me to donate more funds to her campaign to insure her victory in the 2010 election. Now while Boxer has more chutzpah than just about anyone on Capital Hill, I turned her down. Conditionally. In essence, I told her that I […](image)

So Senator Obama is telling us this campaign is about us, right? So what do we do? We rally an unprecedented 24,000 in NYC. On ten days notice! But if you live in New York and you weren’t anywhere in the vicinity of Greenwich Village last Thursday night, chances are you have no idea what […](image)

The first rule in physics may very well be the first rule in politics as well: an object in motion tends to stay in motion. Today, we are a country on a clear course.  We are a country at war, with thousands dead, and no exit strategy. We are a country addicted to foreign oil, […](image)

Hollywood couldn’t have scripted it better. Dirty Dancing and Strictly Ballroom pale in comparison. The American GOP Forum at Morgan State in Baltimore. A chance for Republican presidential wannabes to strut their stuff for a largely African American audience in attendance — and with, maybe, hundreds of thousands more courtesy of PBS, who televised the […](image)

I am a life-long Southerner. My family, branches both here in South Carolina and in Virginia, were plantation owners; cotton and tobacco growers who bought and sold people, broke families and bodies and spirits for profit. I was raised by genteel racists who still claimed “Our darkies did not want to be free. They depended […](image)
