The Blue State '08 endorsement nears
Yes, posts on this site have slowed a bit because I am literally working two other jobs at the moment that occupy about 50 hours of my time per week. But as primary season heats up, we will escalate our coverage significantly. This is the most important primary election in a generation because we are entertained with a fundamentally basic question: do we nominate someone from inside the Washington establishment, or do we look for a progressive voice from the outside who is capable of bringing about major change?
Clearly, on the inside we have people like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Bill Richardson, who are continuing to take money from lobbyists. Barack Obama and John Edwards, however, do not. The latter two rely on individual donors to fund their campaigns. It's a bottom-up mentality, which means Edwards and Obama will not be indebted to the forces in Washington. Instead, they will be indebted to all the small donors that contributed a few dollars here and there to a cause that is much worth the fight.
Unfortunately, to the benefit of Hillary Clinton, both Edwards and Obama cancel each other out.
