Arkansas Democrats left with NO DOUBT!

I just returned from the annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner for the Arkansas Democratic Party at AllTel Arena in North Little Rock. The tables each went for $1,000 and it was $100 a plate. The dinner guests heard from former Governors and U.S. Senators David Pryor and Dale Bumpers, former Governor Jim Guy Tucker, Governor Mike Beebe, U.S. Senators Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor, and U.S. Congressmen Marion Berry, Vic Snyder, and Mike Ross. Bumpers and Snyder represent true liberals, Beebe and Tucker are progressive populists, Pryor, Sr. & Pryor, Jr. as well as Lincoln are true moderates, and Berry & Ross represent a more conservative Democrat.

The message was clear to all the Democrats present….YES WE CAN!

Yes every single speaker left no doubt….Democrats in Arkansas should be and must be united for Barack Obama. Former General Wesley Clark, still beloved and with many wishing he is being vetted for Vice President, was in the audience as well and joined the concophony in saying YES WE CAN!

Obama’s campaign may have written off Arkansas but Arkansas Democratic Party leaders are following the example set by the Clintons and getting behind Obama. I hope the Obama campaign notices that in this state, it’s winnable, and with an Arkansan on the ballot, this state along with the states Kerry won in 2004, and Obama wins the White House.

Just saying….
