Have you made your contribution to Obama for America?

You can donate online at www.barackobama.com by clicking on the "donate" button above.


Senator Barack Obama's Presidential campaign is about building a different kind of politics. They don't take money from lobbyists or political action committees, and they're going to build a broad base of individual donors to ensure that the campaign answers to no one but the people.


That starts with you.


Make your donation online by clicking the button above.

Which is all very cool. But, the problem is that the PACs and lobbyists will still get their money in covertly through individual contributions.

...or they'll just choose to back another candidate...

but should that really stop a person from donating to the candidate they support...?

i'm not even sure i'm going to ultimately support him, but - i will consider helping his campaign because i like the idea that he isnt going to be beholdent right out of the gate to whoever (except ME! maybe he will fix some traffic tickets for me if i send him ten bucks!).

i doubt that individual contributions to a campaign like this, even if they are backed secretly by a PAC, will make that big of a difference to Barrack if he is already opposed to taking the money from PACs.

Linnie, I was wondering how Mr. O'Bama was going to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Not unlike every other pol: looking for that pot o' gold.

.

Left: Actual good-humored self-reference at Tacoma, WA:
"Senator Obama claims the new name of O'Bama in honor of St. Patrick's Day."

To be fair, it should be noted that this visit was in 2006, so it wasn't an Obama fundraiser.

Right: The Obama campaign is receiving support from Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Coalition.

So … Should It Be Spelled O’Bama?

Although noted for being born in Hawaii to a Kenyan father and a mother from Kansas, presidential hopeful Barack Obama actually has roots in Ireland, according to a British genealogical Web site (www.ancestry.co.uk).

According to the Times of London, the site has identified Obama’s great-great-great-grandfather on his mother’s side as Falmouth Kearney, who fled Ireland and the Great Famine at the age of 19. He arrived in New York from Liverpool on March 20, 1850, and then moved on to Ohio to be among relatives.

Simon Harper, managing director of the site, told the newspaper that: “A great deal has been made of Obama’s Kenyan roots; however, his European ancestry has been overlooked.”
{Well, probably because while he was growing up, African Americans generally made him feel he fit in better than Irish Americans did.}
