Terry McAuliffe, you failed the United States as a soccer fan just as much as you failed the United States as chairman of the Democratic Party.  Thanks for that!  I would think that the guys from our team would have done much better without you creating a curse for them in person, just like the Democrats that I liked when you were chairman.  That is until, thank God, Howard Dean took over for you and created unprecedented success for Democrats.  I met you in person at the Kentucky Jefferson-Jackson dinner in in 2004, and it's no surprise I still don't like you.

And Bill Clinton, you sitting there with Terry McAuliffe on one side and Mick Jagger on the other reminds me just how much I like Barack better than you.   I don't care how much money  Mick Jagger has made; the fact is he hasn't done jack s--t to benefit the human race, and that is a fact.

Third solid, original paragraph: Barack Obama has done more to change the course of this country in 17 months than Bill Clinton did in 96 months.  Continuing with the theme of pro-Obama diaries on this site recently, Obama has done the most to change the course of this country in a posiitive manner since FDR.  As a proud Democrat who lives in Indiana (of course I believe in fiscal responsibility Evan Bayh, that is why I am glad Brad Ellsworth is running this time) I thank my stars that we have a President who has the intellect and stamina to make tough decisions, and we will see more success than the pundits can imagine.

And let me give a shoutout to "Dump Terry McAuliffe" from a four-digit user, you have my favorite UID of all time!

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.

    sure this was all that necessary.

    President Obama may have some fractious Democrats (Ben Nelson anyone?) but he does have a Democratic House and Senate.  The Big Dog had a Republican Congress for six years. Given Newt and his fello buffoons, I'm surprised Bill could get as much as he did done.

      •  President Obama and the Natl Sales Tax (0+ / 0-)

        Fair enough on your criticism of former President Clinton.

        But if President Obama signs legislation enacting a national sales tax, as Pelosi, E. Emanuel, Podesta, R. Altman, Volcker, and even he have all floated, then Obama will have inflicted more pain on the working and middle-class than Clinton.

        No excuse for any Dem president to support a national sales tax, EVER.

        Mick I can take or leave.  So there.  Besides, as pointed out in the clever diary by "Redstate", Team America's loss is just another Obama fail.

    should ever be on television. (Terry Mack is one of them, of course. He's a loser. I personally think he threw the 2004 presidential election to set the stage for HRC - whom I still voted for, but am certainly happy with how things turned out - to run in 2008.)

    But why would I want to see people I don't like on television? It totally ruins the event.

  •  Huh? (0+ / 0-)

    The snark is escaping me here.

    I've hated Bill and Terry from time to time--mainly because they were such no holds barred campaigners when my candidate went up against them--but I love both of them now.

    They're Democrats. And Jagger would be a Democrat if he could. But, since he couldn't, he wrote Sweet Neocon and refused to give up his hotel room for Bush.

    Save your anger for the Repubs. I do.

  •  Jagger would be a "Democrat" if he could? (0+ / 0-)

    Here is Jagger borrowing from the Republican playbook, talking about "success" in England being resented.

    Wow, that's terrific that Mick Jagger refused to give up his hotel room for Bush.  Good for him!  I like your username, but I mean seriously, Mick Jagger has done nothing with his years of celebrity to help the human race, unlike countless musicians.

    I hope you are telling the idiots bashing Obama daily on this site to save their anger for Repubs.

    •  Yeah, I do that. (0+ / 0-)

      And, I'll concede, there are a lot of idiots here bashing Obama.

      But I wouldn't put all of them or even most of them in the Clinton camp. Most of them seem like the same kind of purists who vote Green when their  every wish isn't granted.

      Anyway, maybe you should think of it this way. Who is trying to do the most harm to Obama? Clinton, Jagger, McAuliffe or the Repubs?

      I think the answer is obvious.
