Brunch Time!!!

Let's start with VOTE FOR CHANGE.

This is a national registration plan ongoing by the Obama Campaign. We have organization and infrastructure set up in all 50 states, along with passionate and ready to go staff from the Obama Campaign.

Getting folks to vote is critical for an Obama win in November. We witnessed record turnout in state after state. And let us not even talk about the caucuses going through the roof from participation.

Folks, we need to ramp up the voter registration, period.

Got nothing to do, but want to participate? This is easy, just asking all these kids that will be 18 in November or many who are disenchanted with politics to take a chance and REGISTER to VOTE.

Let us all do our part. It all starts right, here. Get involved.


The Obama Campaign outreach is to everyone, including evangelicals. Remember the speech Obama gave in Alabama back in March 2007? The anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Selma? He explained that he is from the "Joshua Generation". If you don't recall, view the complete speech here with transcript, it is worth viewing and reading.

"The Joshua Generation project will be the Obama campaign's outreach to young people of faith. There's unprecedented energy and excitement for Obama among young evangelicals and Catholics. The Joshua Generation project will tap into that excitement and provide young people of faith opportunities to stand up for their values and move the campaign forward."

The official rollout won't be for another two weeks or so, but The Brody File has been told the activities will include house parties, blogging, concerts and more.

All that is described above is how The Obama Campaign started. I am going to track this with interest, because this can explode into new voters at the polls in November, but even more so removing a serious voter block from the Republicans. Will keep you informed.


Seems that there are some very unhappy folk in Republicanland.



Obama Could Raise 100M in June.

How can that be?

Leading Democratic fundraisers predict that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) will raise hundreds of millions of dollars over the next few months if he opts out of public financing and begins raising money for the general election.

Specifically, they say Obama could raise $100 million in June and could attract 2.5 million to 3 million new donors to his campaign.

These fundraisers say Obama could increase his fundraising dramatically because of three factors: a boost of enthusiasm among Obama donors following his clinching of the nomination; the migration of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s (D-N.Y.) donors to his camp; and the mobilization of big Democratic donors who have given little so far this year.

Record-breaking projections give Obama strong incentive to pass up $85 million in public funds that his opponent, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), has said he would accept.

Folks, we will need every single penny coming this fall. With full staffing in all 50 States, YES WE NEED EVERY PENNY.

The Obama Train is rolling along this summer and fall for all 50 States, Get on Board Now....


Why the Economy Won't Recover in the Second Half of 2008, people this is worth a read and an indication WHY we will win in the fall.


The pain is still there and real. If Barack Obama had lost or it was perceived the nomination was stolen from him, we would feel disenchanted. When we speak to Hillary Supporters it should not be about gloating, but about bringing them aboard and letting them know we need them. Read this following diary by desmoinesdem simply titled: "Friendly advice: How to talk to non-supporters about Obama."


Clinton urges her delegates to back Obama

This is all good folks:

Hillary Clinton on Monday asked Democratic primary delegates who would have supported her in her presidential bid to back her former rival Barack Obama.

The request came in a Monday night teleconference, said Virgil J. Mayberry, a Rock Island County Board member and one of Sen. Clinton's delegates.

Sen. Clinton threw her support behind Sen. Obama Saturday after suspending her campaign.

"She wants us to unite behind Obama and help him," said Mr. Mayberry, who chairs his party's minority caucus on the county board.

Mr. Mayberry said Sen. Clinton talked for about five minutes to Democratic national convention delegates from all over the country. She appeared upbeat, he said.

"Over the phone, she seemed jovial," he said. "I can't say happy-happy, but she was talking to her people."

According to Mr. Mayberry, she also thanked the delegates for their support and said she planned on continuing to pursue health care as a major issue for the party during the upcoming campaign.

But Sen. Clinton would not discuss her intentions toward the vice president's position on Sen. Obama's ticket, he said.

Mr. Mayberry, a Democrat, said he plans to honor Sen. Clinton's request.

"I plan on working for Sen. Obama as hard as I can," he said.

And while we are worried about unity, the Republicans are FAR MORE FRACTURED:

John McCain may be the presumed Republican presidential nominee, but he’s still not connecting with a critical group of donors the way President Bush did during his 2004 re-election campaign.

The extensive network of partisan supporters that helped President Bush break fundraising records on his way to two terms in office has, for an array of reasons, yet to rally around the Arizona senator.

Finally, Senator Joe Lieberman is a disgrace. There were words exchanged between Obama and Lieberman last week on the senate floor.
Sen. Joe Lieberman, the self-described "Independent Democrat" who caucuses with the Democratic party in the Senate even though he has endorsed Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, got some tough talk from Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, yesterday about his advocacy for the presumptive Republican presidential candidate and the general tone of the campaign, Democratic sources tell ABC News.

Returning to the Senate after his securing the Democratic presidential nomination, Obama and Lieberman greeted each on the Senate floor in the Well as they were voting on the budget resolution.

They shook hands. But Obama didn’t let go, leading Lieberman - cordially - by the hand across the room into a corner on the Democratic side, where Democratic sources tell ABC News he delivered some tough words for the junior senator from Connecticut, who had just minutes before hammered Obama's speech before the pro-Israel group AIPAC in a conference call arranged by the McCain campaign.

Lieberman has purposely extorted and is trying to insinuate that Obama is not friends for Israel.

Now Lieberman will not be intimidated by "sleazy tactics"? Sleazy? Of telling the truth of this turncoat democrat? He is only caucusing with the democrats to hold onto his chairmanships in the senate. I am waiting for Leader Harry Reid to weigh in on this. I am sure he is not going to let this bitter senator continue to keep up b.s. while we are trying to win in November. In November, Lieberman need to pack his goods and go over to the Republicans, he is already one anyway, campaigning for McCain, so just go JOE.
An aide to the McCain-backing Senator from Connecticut tells The Page: “If the Obama campaign thinks they are going to intimidate Joe Lieberman with these sleazy tactics then they are sorely mistaken.”

Time for Joe to GO.

So, how is your day going?
