We are the ones we have been waiting for...

We the undersigned represent a broad spectrum of Americans who have been inspired and energized to vote and caucus, to volunteer in phone banks, to canvas door to door, to contribute our hard earned money, and engage in the conversation of We The People during the Democratic Primary Election season of 2008. We are disaffected Democrats and disillusioned Republicans, Independents, Green Party members, first time voters and those who have long ceased to participate in politics. We mourn the direction our nation has taken and lament the divisiveness which has prevented our political leaders from solving critical problems in the areas of foreign policy, military engagement, care for our veterans, the economy, and health care, among others. Our yearning for change goes beyond any loyalty to a specific political party. Instead, we are loyal to change itself and to the hope that our voices will be heard as we call out for a new kind of politics, where the impetus for change comes from the bottom up and not the other way around. The fervor and excitement of this political season is a result of a movement in which we are engaged. In November, we will continue to vote and phone and canvas and work only for the candidate who we believe to be under no obligation to the PACS and lobbyists who are the obstacles to change, the candidate who is unencumbered by the bickering and partisanship of the past. We will only vote for the candidate who we believe to be able to lead us in a new direction and in a new political context into the future. We wish it to be known that in the event of a brokered Democratic Primary convention in August, our hopes and energy are directed to the nomination of Senator Barack Obama.
