The great young american orator aparently lost his tongue.
Where was Barak Obama today?  Where was he yesterday?  Where was he Tuesday?
He was out-progressived by Senator Dodd, of all people!
Who here can still support him?

Many touted Obamas great charisma and ability.  Where were they today?
Many touted his progressive stances.  Where were they today?
Where was the man who would be the next Democratic president of the United States?
Cowering.  Afraid of the rhetoric of the horrendous monstrosity he hopes to succeed.

This should be the end of his campaign.  He did not stand up for party, people, country.  Who will continue to stand up for him?

Clinton, I expected this cowardice of.  Biden, I expected this cowardice of.  I even expected it of Dodd - and he gave me a pleasant surprise.  But Obama should have and could have done more.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
