Dear June Bennett,

First, let me thank you again for your support and ideas during
last week's hearings with Ambassador John Bolton and Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice. Consistent with the utter arrogance
of this Administration, neither one of them answered my
questions directly. And even worse, Secretary Rice rewrote
history yet again, claiming that rebuilding the entire Middle
East has been the Bush Administration's stated mission ever
since 9/11.

In the face of all this, you have no idea how much it means to
me that you are out there standing with me in these battles we
must continue to fight every single day. We must stand together
to turn our country around! And it starts with the midterm
elections coming up next year.

I need you to stand with me and help me take back the Senate, at
a time when Republican leaders in Congress and the White House
are facing charges of unethical behavior -- and worse. If ever
there was a time for a change, it's now.

Contribute to PAC for a Change today!

Day after day, brave American soldiers are dying in Iraq, where
our policy of staying there without an exit strategy is in
itself fueling an insurgency that grows more deadly by the day.

Day after day, the Bush Administration tries to erase the image
of "two Americas" that the whole world saw during the aftermath
of Hurricane Katrina. But no amount of "new Presidential focus"
can erase the truth -- that poverty has grown during this
Administration.

Day after day, we see this President backtrack on his pledge to
fire anyone in his Administration that had anything to do with
revealing the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame. And where
is Congress on this whole affair? AWOL -- no outrage and no
hearings.

Yes, day after day, it becomes even more urgent that we win back
the Senate in 2006. We need to defend our great Democratic
incumbents. We need to win open seats, especially in states like
Maryland, New Jersey, and Minnesota where strong Democrat
Senators are retiring. Finally, we need to challenge Republican
incumbents like radical right-wing Senator Rick Santorum of
Pennsylvania whose views are an insult to women and science.

Our PAC for a Change is already making a difference, but we have
a long way to go. With your help, not only will be continue to
make major financial contributions to these candidates, but I'll
also be able to travel far and wide across the country to
campaign hard for the Democrats we need to take back the Senate

Hi June,



What a great letter!!!  This sounded like a personal reply.  



I would love to see Barbara Boxer or Cynthia McKinney be the first woman President.



Wouldn’t we all???



Sadly, notinourlifetime,
