    Obama supporter here and a Kos newbie but giving props to Drew for staying calm under heavy fire.

    Now when it comes to polls big problem is that we know that popular vote doesn't win the POTUS spot.  Unless they break it down by electoral college it's just a popularity contest.  If Obama can tip a couple of purple states over to blue then he's got more power in the contest than Clinton if all she can do is the same as Kerry.

      I hope he can certainly do that.  In the meantime, I hope he finds a way to connect to blue-collar workers.  I grew up in a steel town, and voters there are having trouble with the hope and change message.  It's not resonating with them.  I'm afraid they'll go with McCain because they can "get" him.

      Together, we will turn promises into action, words into solutions and hope into reality.

      •  How about Edwards as Attorney General? (0+ / 0-)

        Would that help the blue collars go Bama?

        I was a Clinton voter in the 90s but I don't know what Hillary brings to the table that they wouldn't also find in McCain?
