As the Democratic Convention kicked off last night, people eagerly gathered around their televisions. Adam and Kristen Luikens invited their neighbors over to watch. Kristen is the president of Democratic Women of New Hanover County. She and her husband and neighbors say they plan to watch as much as they can. Kristen is looking for party unity, as well as a big celebration of Obama's candidacy. "A lot of exciting things going on for the people who attend and it's fun to watch. But this year, considering it's the first woman and the first African American, it's really major," said Kristen. The Luikens' neighbor, Tony DeJoseph, is unaffiliated and said he is interested in learning more about the candidates.

obama

democrats

a vote for obama is like a chicken voting for colonel sanders!

Democratic convention

Hillary Clinton's speech last night just reinforced the fact that the DNC threw their support behind the wrong candidate. And Michelle Obama's scowling face proved that even she knew it as she watched the speech. I cannot and will not ever support Barak Obama. He does not deliver CHANGE, with his affiliations with Kennedy, Kucinich, Biden, Kerry, etc. Biden's son is a Washington Lobbyist. How is this change? Same old, same old Washington politics. And this Vegas floor show Obama has planned for tommorrow night with the Greecian column props is ridiculous. How much of the contributions that we made to elect a Democratic President is being wasted on this? We need a President who is actually concerned with the people of this country and not his own celebrity. It is not Barak Obama.

A successful person voting for a Democrat...

...is identical to a woman inviting a known rapist home for a few drinks. Why do it? You know what's going to happen.
