Sample Post 2: More Obama

Again and again, we've seen him make tough choices when easier ones were available. John Kerry believes in the Constitutional freedoms that have made our country the envy of the world, and he will never sacrifice our basic liberties, nor use faith as a wedge to divide us. Unlike Afghanistan, Iraq was a war of choice that provoked strong differences in my country and around the world. Americans are ready to join with citizens and governments; community organizations, religious leaders, and businesses in Muslim communities around the world to help our people pursue a better life.

E pluribus unum. I learned that my sins could be redeemed. The truth is, on issue after issue that would make a difference in your lives - on health care and education and the economy - Senator McCain has been anything but independent. You make a big election about small things. That is why we will honor our agreement with Iraq's democratically-elected government to remove combat troops from Iraqi cities by July, and to remove all our troops from Iraq by 2012. The Internet and television can bring knowledge and information, but also offensive sexuality and mindless violence.
