    I don’t understand how anyone, who CARES AT ALL about the supposedly “equivocated” issues stated above, could allow themselves to back away from Obama at this time. If John McCain is elected, which he very well might be, the next four years may be even fucking longer than previous eight.

    So we assume our guy’s a liar. So why is everyone surprised then when Bush lied? Just saying…

    What egregious changes has Obama made about the war or off-shore drilling? He’s still for pulling out of Iraq as early as it makes sense to, and is open to some compromise with Republicans on the off-shore drilling issue as long as it’s only a temporary crutch and we’re fully committed to alternative sources of energy.He’s “equivocating” because when you want to get elected, it helps to sound like you’re at least open to compromise with your opponents. If he publicly maintains far-left progressive attitudes during the campaign, he will lose. This way, he can win. Don’t you get that? Nobody can be totally honest in politics, live with it.

    The 08 election comes at an especially important time on a number of very big issue: global warming and energy, Iraq, recession, housing crisis, and America’s diplomatic standing, to name a few. The Democratic and Republican positions, as represented by their standard bearers Obama and McCain, are starkly different. Obama is, unfortunately, not the model progressive that progressive voters hoped he would be when voting for him against a field of Democratic Party loyals in the primary. But Obama does offer a distinctly more progressive future for America, and, for this reason, it is important that progressives support Obama against McCain.see also: http://www.thenation.com/doc/20080901/borosage_kvh

    amen to that, 10:35 am. Obama definitely represents a huge step in a better direction for this country, and if you so naive about politics as to be fixated on these comparatively very minor issues, 9:29 and 10:00 am, you deserve to be bitter.

    wait, you’re really saying that Obama’s specific positions on NAFTA, offshore drilling and campaign funding are what made him so appealing to you 19 months ago? somehow, I don’t believe you.

    So you’re saying it’s cool for Obama to lie and misrepresent himself, to equivocate on virtually every position that made him so appealing during the primaries (campaign funding, the war, off shore drilling, NAFTA), just so he can get elected? And what part of that is Change!? That’s what every politician does! Sorry, he’s lost me. I mean, Kerry was a jerk, but at least he didn’t compromise his positions in 04. Obama = Same not change. This process has left me so bitter.

    9:29, as sad as it is, politics as usual is how people get elected to high office in America. Michelle Obama did a great job representing herself to mainstream Americans, and you should wait until the Obamas get elected for the change you want

    I wouldn’t be surprised if space is an issue, but also remember that this is (hopefully) going to be playing on most/all of the lounge TVs as well, and you can stream it from the convention website as well, so even if space *is* an issue it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a place to watch.

    Do they really think there’s enough room in Usdan for this? There was barely room for the post-Fountain talk back session. Space is going to be a huge issue, no?

    Why bother. Obama’s already sold out every position he took during the primaries. And what Michelle did the other night was a giant step back for feminism. They basically made her pretend she was a good lil ol housewife. Sicking. I feel so ripped off. This isn’t Change. It’s politics as usual.
