Just Another Girl On The IRT

Freestyle musings from a pseudo-intellectual hellcat in high heels with Huxtable aspirations in a ghetto fab world. Proudly sponsored by bouts of bitchy mood swings, one too many swigs of Turning Leaf, the letters F & U and the madness that is the Rotten Apple.

Get up, get out and do something

If you live in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California or any of the other 22 states that are holding primaries and caucuses tomorrow, please get out there and let your voice be heard. I hope you'll consider picking Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for the 44th United States Presidency. There's a golden opportunity within our grasp. We can finally have a major impact in choosing this party's nomination. Let's not let it go to waste.

Weighing the choice before us isn't merely boiled down to identity box demographics. It's whether we choose to take a step forward with a clean slate or regress back to the entrenched politics of the status quo.

The only endorsement that really matters is the one you give when you go into the voting booth. Nevertheless, if a respected voice gives a convincing reason for their choice of a candidate, it's something worth considering. The following shortlist have provided compelling cases for Obama much better than I can:
But I don't expect anyone to take third party's stamps of approval at face value, but solely on the basis of what the candidate themselves have to say. So stripped of all artifice and celebrity cache, please take some time out to listen to Sen. Barack Obama speaking with the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle on the challenges and solutions needed to put this country back on the road to recovery and redemption. I hope his words inspire you as much as they did me.
