I Touched Obama: Babel, Barack

"You give us Iowa, we will give you New York. We will make it quick and painless for Hillary," I told Michelle.

Michelle Obama Is Just Fabulous

On February 5, 2008, we will know Barack is the nominee and the next President Of The United States.

Jupiter And Obama

On February 6, 2008 he should announce that he has picked Hillary to be his running mate.

And from then until November we engage the American people in the most intense policy conversation any two people who ever ran for the White House ever did.

Abraham Lincoln is remembered as the greatest president because he partially liberated a few million people. Barack Obama has the option to top that by fully liberating billions. Like JFK set the goal of "a man on the moon by the end of the decade," Barack has to set the goal of a total spread of democracy by 2020, and he he has to set that goal in his inauguration speech in 2009. You spread democracy the progressive way, Nepal's April Revolution way. The message is you shut your country completely down for three weeks and you will have democracy. We from outside will provide you all moral and logistical support. It will be war with communications technology.

The First Major Revolution Of The 21st Century Happened In Nepal

The Energy Solution: Nuclear Energy

Outsourcing is a problem: Hillary Clinton Rediff Terming outsourcing a "problem", New York Senator Hillary Clinton said tax breaks for "outsourcing" jobs have to be ended. "Outsourcing is a problem. We have to do several things: End the tax breaks that still exist in the tax code for outsourcing jobs; have trade agreements with enforceable labour and environmental standards; help Americans compete, which is something we haven't taken seriously, which goes back to the very first question about education and skills," she said. "Let's not forget that 65 per cent of kids in an age cohort do not go on to college. What are we doing to help them get prepared for the jobs that we could keep here that wouldn't be outsourced? And find a new source of jobs. Clean energy, global warming would create millions of new jobs for Americans," Senator Clinton added.
