This generation has never known leadership in Washington that embraces the idea that government can play a positive role in the lives of millions in the U.S. and around the world. The following candidates will help Barack Obama to make the idea of a government with and for the people a reality, and your donation (even $1 - really!) can help them get elected.

(Note: The blurbs below focus more on the negative things about their opponents. For the lots of positive - and more important - things about the candidates, check out their websites, easily found via Google)

Jeff Merkley


From the Oregonian:

"Merkley raced [quarter-midget cars] as a child, and once owned - and crashed - a Harley. He roomed with an impoverished family in Ghana as a teen, hitchhiked across Israel as a young man and went on, as he puts it, to help shut down one of Portland's worst crack alleys."

His opponent, incumbent Ted Stevens, is running for re-election and standing trial for corruption at the same time. Begich promotes economically efficient ways of reducing global warming. You decide who you want in the Senate.

Al Franken


At the very least, C-SPAN 2 would be a lot more interesting. Oh, and he's for real - Franken has been a progressive champion for years.

Saxby Chambliss, Martin's opponent, ran an ad in 2002 morphing triple amputee Vietnam veteran Max Cleland's face into Osama Bin Laden's.
