For once:  Can we put American jobs for workers first?  We have a recovery that reaches main street? And we stop spending money in Iraq and start spending it here?  Can we have affordable healthcare for everyone?  For everyone?  For everyone?  Can we really elect a president we can believe in?

Yes we can!    March 4th, your vote, your voice.  Your chance to change America. Barack Obama.  President.
