"During the course of this presidential campaign I have gotten to know the candidates very well we have all been out speaking about the issues near and dear to our hearts
I want to take a minute to say something about your friend and mine Hillary Clinton
in the past few weeks I have gotten to know sen. Clinton very well
we have talked about the things we care about and you all care about
she believes America can be a better place and we need change
I wanna tell you I know this hard to understand sometimes
it is very hard to get up every day and do what she has done,
when the odds turn agains you
what she has shown is strength and character
what drives her is what each and everyone of us should care about
A woman made of steel
she is a leader not because of her husband but what she has done
for standing up and speaking up
when this nomination battle is over and it will be over soon
brothers and sisters we must come together as democrats and stand up together
and we are a stronger party because Hillary Clinton is a Democrat
we are going to have a stronger presidential nominee in the fall because of her work
now what brought us here?"
Good Choice Sir! Vice President Candidate?

Therefore, it is critical that this country's infrastructure and emergency response systems are evaluated and rebuilt to sustain our cities and protect our families. What happened in Louisiana should never happen again.
I have learned firsthand that a unified constituency can make what seems impossible, possible. Senator Obama represents a new generation of leadership, one that can help heal the divisions of the past and unify this country so that together we can build a stronger future. - Ray Nagin

Last week's poll of New Zealanders' opinion of the American presidential race showed most of us, too, want him to beat Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination and then defeat John McCain in the election. Obama's demographic appeal here mirrored the US, but there was no appreciable difference between National and Labour voters, with both groups preferring him to Clinton. Full Article
