Free Obama buttons
In July, Moveon.org offered free Obama buttons to anyone that wanted it. I was a little hesitance because I know that there would be a catch. My college professor would always remind the class that there's no such thing as a free lunch.
I decided to order a button and used one of my web email accounts to track the order. That way I would know that all emails that I got would be a result of the Obama button request.
It's October 26, 2008 and the media has a tracker on how many days are left before election, I am sure someone has the number of hours count. However, I haven't received my Obama button yet. I am thinking that I am never going to get one.
If the Obama team can't keep their promise before an election, what do you think will happen once he gets into office? How many promises and pledges will he break if he is elected? Is he really trust worthy?
Something to think about just 9 days to go…

Last night CNN reported that Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, recently cleared his schedule. Tim Pawlenty is one of the candidates John McCain is considering for Vice President. We should have some idea today of his choice.

Last week I predicted that Joe Biden would get the Democrat VP nomination, this week I think that Mitt Romney will get the Republican VP nomination.
Mitt Romney is a great business person and would make the McCain ticket a very strong ticket. I think he would help McCain get the conservative vote.
Watch the Mitt Romney commercial talking about the "Big Dig" mess, when he was running for governor of Massachusetts in 2000. The Big Dig would be an issue during the last year of his term when part of the ceiling collapse in one of the tunnels killing a passenger in one of the cars.

So it looks like that Joe Biden might be the Democratic Nominee. If this case you might want to visit the above site and get on the Joe Biden mailing list to get the first email on his reaction to the being the VP.
I still remember how Mike Dukakis campaign took down Joe Biden's 1988 presidential run by disclosing the plagiarism in one of his speeches. Wikipedia has some coverage of it.

Offshore Drilling Quotes
Here's some quotes on Offshore Drilling from Presidental Canidates in March, 2000:
George W. Bush: "I support the current moratorium banning any new leases for drilling off the coast of California. As governor of Texas, I understand the importance of listening to state concerns. I'll work with California state leaders and the local communities to determine on a case-by-case basis whether or not the drilling ought to go forward on the leases in place right now."
John McCain: "The leases for offshore oil drilling should never have been granted without allowing Californians a legitimate voice in the decision-making process. I believe it is up to the voters of California to determine the fate of these leases, and as president, I will respect the decision they make regarding the leases. The people of California deserve to be heard, without being forced to resort to legal action against their own government. As president, I will see to it that the interests of the people of California rise above the special interests of Washington, D.C."
