  •  Why I Prefer Pennachio (none)
    The following things about Pennachio are the reasons why I think he is better for the Senate and the Democratic Party.

    • He supports lgbt rights.
    • He supports the inalienable right of women to choose on abortion.
    • He has been doing grassroots organizing throughout his adult life.  The Democratic Party desperately needs elected officials who understand the grassroots and who will encourage active participation in the party.
    • He supports embryonic stem cell research.
    • He supports an exit strategy for Iraq.
    • He is a dynamic speaker, unlike most Democratic politicians.  I was highly impressed by his short speech at the end of last Wednesday's Stonewall Democratic club here in NYC.
    • He opposed the nomination of John Roberts.
    • He supports living wage legislation.
    • He champions state/church separation.

    To be honest, if Casey wins the nomination, I will pretty much ignore a race between Santorum and Santorum-lite.  For me to support a Democrat, that Democrat needs to be a positive alternative to the Republican, not the lesser of two evils.

    Take Back the Democratic Party
