Obama will do nothing we want unless we force his hand.    And if we can't force his hand, we need to replace him.

How do we do that?   We challenge him in 2012, and we start now.

It's a win-win for us.    We pressure him and he has to cave .... and if he still beats Dean in the primary, at least we've forced the guy to pay attention to us.  

Better yet, we win, and we replace him with someone who is OBVIOUSLY better and actually might represent us:  Howard  Dean.

Of course, the Big Question is how do we get Dean to do this .....

I'm throwing it out there.  

Let's talk about it.

Who do you trust?   Obama or Dean?

Why would you want Obama for 7 more years?

If you DO want Obama for 7 more years, why are you complaining?   If you're so happy with him, then STFU!

Or do you think he cares about message-board whining?

("this is not a diary!  this is not a diary!" :     Yeah well make it one with the comments.  I've said enough)

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.
