As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

The Senate doesn't see much of Sen. Obama
He refuses to take a stand on anything, voting PRESENT instead of yes or no. Is this a leader?
Clinton’s Hill helpers bash Obama over ‘present’ votes
Congressional members supporting Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) ripped into Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in a conference call with reporters Thursday that was set up by the campaign.
Democratic Reps. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.), Joseph Crowley (N.Y.) and Stephanie Tubbs Jones (Ohio) all joined Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson on the call to hit Obama for the number of “present” votes he cast while in the Illinois state Senate.
After The New York Times published a story Thursday reporting that Obama voted “present” — instead of yes or no — almost 130 times, the Clinton campaign and her congressional surrogates told reporters that Obama’s record was an indication that he is not a strong leader and unwilling to take a stand.

I enjoy photography and cats, and the people who enjoy photography and cats. Politics has become a second or third interest now that Tom Delay is going to jail and the GopPigS have lost the Congress. Even with the other big-business party, the Democrats, shape-shifting and pretending to stop the war, politics is a swamp that one should avoid.
