      im pretty new here too and i am seeing so many of the ones i respect and love to read leave.  Even Patch Adams is gone :(

      Pretty soon it will be left to those who want their way or the highway purity tests and that is sad.

      There is more fighting against the good dems, trying to hurt Obama and his administration than uplifting and working for dems.  Or perhaps i got the meaning of this site, to elect better democrats. Once elected they should be attacked or if appointed they should be attacked.

      I don't know.  maybe i am just feeling very depressed at the number of "obama has betrayed us" diaries and the efforts to go after diarists who don't agree has stopped me from finding it a place of community anymore but rather a place for dems to eat their own (with exceptions of course).  I do know that the more who care about having good and better dems in office leave, the more the battle is left to those who will hurt the movement.

      6 days to the most exciting and historic election that we can all be proud of helping bring to fruition in our ways small and large (mine very small lol) and yet sometimes i think that has been forgotten.  We are fighting each other daily, people like Caroline who steps up to try and continue the good works of progressives are considered unacceptable bc GASP she hasn't been active publically for long (her books, her work on education in NY and very important work for Obama doesnt matter).  Well Obama was in all fairness a neophyte for the position of president. I think he will be one of the best we have had partly because of that and as much as i mouthed the 8 yrs in illinois, 2 in US senate, constitutional lawyer - as is caroline -i knew that underneath the experience argument was really a fair one given the post he was campaigning for.

      Or OH NOEZ a dynasty!!! uhh what are the cuomos? Just as much of a dynasty.  A candidtate/appointment when someone is from a well known political family can give something extremely important.  Knowledge of what is in their political soul, what they grew up believing from the minute they were old enough to listen to issues across the dinner table. Thats a good thing. I knew that GWB was a terrible choice just by his political dynastic name coupled with his words. He grew up sipping from the pablum that his dad spooned. Give me CK who sipped from the spoon of her dad, her uncle Teddy and cares about the progressive issues instead.

      Anyway, i hope you stay, just make sure your money cant be used for things you are against any longer.  

      Don't leave the field, to many of you have gone and ppl like me are to new to make a difference

      Powell on palin: I don't believe she's ready to be president of the United States, which is the job of the vice president.
