Hello, I'm a long time lurker and very infrequent commenter. The dog of a good friend of mine needs help. Her little dog Tu is in trouble and needs surgery as soon as possible to repair his leg; She doesn't make enough money to pay for the surgery offhand, given that she's also supporting her elderly mother. I thought I'd see if the Daily Kos community would want to chip in a little something to help her out. Tu is really all she has, and it would be awful if she had to lose him.
Here's a link to help donate below, if you're willing to help. Check the update tab in the link below for the most recent details
Thanks so much guys
From what I've heard, Senator Edwards is now out of a job.
Most vice-presidential losers fade to obscurity, but Edwards has enough charisma and scrappiness to remain a formidible political force.
So what now, Edwards? What do the Kossians believe he should do?
- Re-evaluate his message in the light of election analysis, even spend some time on blogs (!!), and make a bid to return in 2008.
- Make like Dean and help the efforts of Democrats trying to gain or retain office in the national legislature and states.
- Become a thorn in the side of the GOP spin and become a voice for the Democratic party through the media and other formats.
(these also can be possibilities for Dean and Clark, but Edwards is in a dangerous situation, so I'm using him as an example. Feel free to discuss Dean and Clark's path as well!)
Given a rather shocking loss to the elephant party in an election that should not have been close, I began to speculate on an approach to winning elections.
This speculation occurred in the quiet morning light as I huddled alone under my blankets - trying to force sleep whilst my mind churned relentlessly.
