Irish Pride

I'm more in line with a Kucinich or a Gravel when it comes to politics. I liked Dodd for his willingness to fight on telecom immunity. I liked Edward's focus on class inequality. But they're all out of the race now (except Gravel... i guess?). Of the two remaining, i'm certainly no fan of Clinton. She totally failed to distinguish herself by standing up to Bush in the Senate, she voted for the war and his tax cuts, and i think her experience/'ready on day one' line is bogus. So i've been glad to see Obama take the wind out of Clinton's sails. He's too centrist for my taste, but he's not bad (and the idea that he's all talk and that he's taken no positions is nonsense). Plus i have to admit his race is a factor for me.

Anyway, if you want to effect real change, the way to do it is through primary challenges to complacent, centrist Democrats. Right now a number of groups are supporting Ed Fallon in his bid to knock out the Bush-supporting Democrat Leondard Boswell, and you can help by contributing to his campaign.
