SO BARACK OBAMA IS MY KIND OF HONEST

I BELIEVE IN SEPARATION OF POWERS IN THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT

and I believe in separation of church and state.

However, I found this video clip interesting. One thing I like about Barack Obama is his integrity. I like his honesty. And I like that he thinks that We The People are an important part of the government. I like that he doesn't cater to the "sound bite" trend of the "almighty media" branch of our society. Here, as in many of Barack's expressions, you have to listen to what he is saying and not for some quip to extract for headline purposes. He requires his listener to think for himself while expecting the listener to hear what he is really saying - and not what you want to hear - but an honest sharing of his thoughtful deliberation. This is a man I could trust with my future and my son's future.

Are you fasting for Darfur?

On December 5th, join Danny Glover, Bradley Whitford, Ben & Jerry's co-founder Jerry Greenfield, Samantha Power and thousands of students around the country for STAND's DarfurFast. The idea is simple: fast from one luxury item for one day and donate the money you would have spent on that item to protect civilians in Darfur. Just three dollars -- less than the cost of a latte -- can provide protection for one woman for a year. Find out more at www.STANDnow.org.

Discuss Darfur with John Prendergast, Samantha Power and Nicholas Kristof

Join hundreds of activists and viewers across the country on December 6 at 8:00 pm EST to watch the HBO premiere of Sand and Sorrow, a powerful film about the tragic and ongoing genocide in Darfur. Following the film, GI-Net, STAND, the Save Darfur Coalition and ENOUGH will host a conference call with John Prendergast, Nicholas Kristof and Samantha Power. The conference call will give you the opportunity to talk about the film with these leading Darfur activists and discover practical ways that you can make a difference to stop the genocide. RSVP for the call.

Share this experience with your family and friends by hosting a house party. Click here to find out more.

U.S. Torch Relay Finishes in DC

Dream for Darfur's Torch Relay has been traveling around the world since August, calling attention to the relationship between China and the genocidal government of Sudan. The U.S. leg of the Relay kicked off in New York City on September 9, with events taking place in more than 60 cities across the United States since then. On December 10, International Human Rights Day, the U.S. leg of the relay will finish up in Washington, D.C. The relay will travel to the White House and the Sudanese Embassy before ending at the Chinese Embassy.

If you are in the DC area, please join Olympic medalist Joey Cheek, Actress Mia Farrow, members of the Darfuian community and others, as we urge the Chinese government to help bring the Olympic motto "One World, One Dream" to Darfur. RSVP at dctorchrelay@savedarfur.org
