Because obviously my blog is critical to the process


If for some bizarre reason Iowa voters stumble across my blog in the next hour, I urge them to support Barack Obama. I believe that he would be the most electable, and the candidate with the best policies. I have long described myself as a "centrist progressive", and Obama is the best candidate for people of my viewpoint, discarding the cold, calculating "establishment" supported Clinton, and the overly union friendly, worryingly populist John Edwards, who has re-dressed himself as the candidate of the left of the Democrats.
Obama's emphasis on progressive change with workable, pragmatic policies, as well as his relative popularity among Republicans, makes him the best candidate for the Democratic Party in 2008.

I too would support Obama and it looks like he just might pull it off. He won Iowa and lets hope this gives him the momentum to pull off New Hampshire. I too consider myself generally centrist, but regardless of where one stands, one must appeal to both Liberals and moderates to win (and likewise Republicans must appeal to both Conservatives and Moderates to win). More Americans are Moderates than are Liberals or Conservatives, so this a very important group.

Numerous polls show that among the Democratic candidates, Obama is the most likely to make Republicans vote Democratic, he has a great personal appeal.

And while Candian soldiers die Obama can't even be bothered to convene the Senate committe that oversees NATO that he chairs. He's too busy running for President.

I think Obama also has the best ability to pick up Independent voters as well and these are without question the most important group, since whichever side they go for usually wins the election.
