Firefighter for Kleeb and Obama


For Nebraskan Democrats this rally was a sight to behold, not simply for the hundreds of Obama volunteers who all raised their hands when asked to commit to casting an early vote. A Presidential campaign opening a second field office in Omaha is something truly remarkable.


It's funny, for all of us here in Nebraska...for the campaigns of Barack Obama, Scott Kleeb and Jim Esch...believing is a powerful force. We have to believe. The campaign staffs, the volunteers, and most importantly the voters know that the only way we win this year is by believing that this is possible in 2008 and working to make it so.  As Scott Kleeb would say, it's only by all of us coming together to fix a broken system in Washington that Nebraskans will get the job done.

Scott Kleeb cast his early vote in Hastings today. We are promoting early voting all over the state. So many of you have supported Scott's campaign. Know that all of us here in Nebraska working for Scott deeply appreciate that.

Washington is broken. We're paying the price.

That's what drives Scott's campaign. That, and a core belief that there's nothing that we can't do when we come together.

All over Nebraska, that's happening tonight.


...and get to work, there's an election to be won!

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.
