This is not a good diary.  To be honest, it's a hack job, not with new or original content, but with items cut and pasted from a candidate's web site.  It's not about anything but the horse race.  

But it's important that you recommend this diary because it supports [Pick your favorite: Clinton / Obama / Kucinich / Edwards / Dodd]

Why will you recommend it?

Because it doesn't say anything useful or original, but it does say good things about [Pick your favorite: Clinton / Obama / Kucinich / Edwards / Dodd]

Or maybe it doesn't say anything useful or original but it says bad things about [Pick your least favorite: Clinton / Obama / Kucinich / Edwards / Dodd]

Maybe this diary says that people oppose Obama because they're racist.  Maybe it says they oppose Edwards because he's a white guy.  Maybe it says that people oppose Clinton because they're sexist or Kucinich because they're anti-elf.

But this is the important thing: this diary fully supports [Pick your favorite: Dodd / Edwards / Clinton / Obama / Kucinich] and you will recommend it because you like your candidate and want diaries that support your candidate to be in front.

You know why else you'll recommend this diary?  

Because tells Kos that he should endorse [Kucinich / Clinton / Obama / Edwards / Dodd].  'Cause clearly, if he refuses to endorse your candidate, he's not as smart as you think he is.

Oh, and in the comments section?

You'll troll-rate people who oppose your candidate and uprate comments by people who support them, even if they accuse others of being [racist / sexist / anti-elf / republicans / anti-gay / OTHER: _____]

Go go forth: recommend this diary, assuming that it supports your candidate because that's what's important: not talking issues.  Not talking commentary.  Not posting original content.  Just going for your candidate no matter what.

Note #1: this diary does not mention Biden, because... oh, never mind.

Note #2: this diary does not mention one other candidate.  Instead, please picture someone shoving a mime into a stream.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
