Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
You might say I was just trying to "make a statement." Perhaps I was. But the truth is, I support Bill Clinton now, just as I supported Bill Clinton in 1992 and 1996. I've always been a Democrat and Clinton is my type of Democrat. I realize he may not appeal to everyone, that's too bad for them.
Bill Clinton has a proven track record that falls squarely within the mainstream of Democratic politics. Maybe that's why he was elected and re-elected. But most of all:
Bill Clinton is experienced as a leader of change.
Great picture of Chelsea, huh?
Some of you may remember the Reagan years and the wasteful economic policies that endured from it. Bill Clinton worked to change that:
Bill led the development of more fiscally responsible budgeting process.
In his own words:
The challenges facing[us] are many - from economic development to the safety of our communities. We need the ideas, commitment and energy of all of our communities and residents.
He also recognizes the value of cooperation between the political parties and will work to actually accomplish things rather than be wedded to partisan gridlock:
"I am running... because I know that two-party government brings fresh ideas and scrutiny, which benefits everyone but the powerbrokers."
~ Bill Clinton
