Right on the heels of my Carville post this morning, I received an email from Democracy for America asking me to sign an open letter to both candidates demanding that they keep focused on the November election:
We have an historic nomination battle, driving record Democratic turn-out and commanding the nation's attention. But, the Democratic race for President has lost its focus. We have John McCain to beat in November, instead we fight each other.As the email says, join me in demanding the candidates fight Grampaw McCain, and not each other!
America needs to know our nominee will fight global warming with new jobs, technologies, and investment. Our nominee will expand health coverage to 10 million kids immediately, allow lifesaving research on stem cells, and work toward health care for all by the end of a first term. We will ban torture, restore habeas corpus, and build renewed respect for America around the world. A Democratic President will end the war in Iraq and bring our brave men and women home.
Let voters choose our nominee based on the best we have to offer, not the worst we can imagine. Join me in demanding Senators Clinton and Obama fight McCain, not each other.
