I am trying to get the discussions going that you all asked for but I got no responses to my last one...
If you would rather leave this community quiet then I am fine with that.  With that, I am trying a topic one more time and hope to get some discussion out of it.

Today's Topic:
What are you thoughts or concerns about the new stimulus package and new budget just turned in to congress from President Obama (that still sounds really cool to me to say)?  Do you think it's too much?  Not enough?  What parts do you think will actually help or hurt the economy? Anything in it you think is directed toward us women?

Hello all! This is the beginning of our biweekly discussion posts. Right now I am not going to put any rules on these discussion except to be respectful to everyone. If there are any problems we can add better rules later.
This weeks question/topic...

What do you think should be the top priority for the incoming Obama administration and what can YOU do to help to further this issue yourself and push it more into the public eye?

Please feel free to expand on this topic anyway you wish!

I know many of you wanted to keep this group going after the election and I am going to post here about every two weeks on women's topics for discussion. I would love to hear you ideas on topics to be discussed and any other suggestions on what to do for other posts as well.
I am also still willing to make political icons for everyone to use so those ideas would be welcome too!
Give me some help to keep this community working for our man.
Thanks in advance!

Seeing Biden's mother - alongside of his grandkids was amazing. Jean Biden is 90 years old.
Seeing them together made me cry even more.

What an amazing night.

After the election?

I am not going to jinx the election.


I wanted to ask everyone if they would be interested in utilizing the community after the election, if Obama wins.

I know a lot of us have gotten to know each other and learn from each other. If Obama wins we are going to have many great advocates for women in the White House.

Also, I am going to try and start doing new pictures of Michelle every day or so. And hopefully we can continue this after Tuesday.

Let me know what everyone thinks. Take care everyone!!

Michelle focuses on Military families

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Once portrayed as unpatriotic, Michelle Obama has quietly carved a niche on the campaign trail as a sounding board for military families, taking up a cause that could define her agenda as first lady.

Every few weeks, Obama meets with military spouses in swing states, where she presents herself as a kindred spirit and Barack Obama as the best choice for their families. She attended the two debates with military family members. And at the Democratic National Convention, she led a day of service on behalf of Blue Star Families for Obama, a two-month old group with the tagline: “Pro-Military, Pro-Obama.”

Obama aides say her work with military families has nothing to do with the controversy created by her February comment suggesting that the presidential campaign made her proud of the United States for the first time. But the effort could be viewed as an exercise in counterprogramming, serving as a rebuttal to criticism from Cindy McCain and others for a comment that Michelle Obama insists was misinterpreted – and the notion that her husband, a Democrat with no military service, cannot peel off voters from John McCain, an ex-Navy pilot and war hero.

“Barack and I know that too often it feels like you are alone, on your own,” Obama told military spouses last month in Santa Fe, N.M. “I know you become everything. In a small way, I have experienced that over the course of this campaign, but in no way does it compare to what you are going through.”

Michelle Obama's focus on military families puts her at the leading edge of the Democratic nominee's campaign to reclaim some of the military vote from Republicans – an effort that brought Barack Obama here Sunday for a rally near Fort Bragg, where a military wife introduced him and he touted his endorsement from Colin Powell, the retired four-star general and President George W. Bush's first Secretary of State.

Since the start of the campaign, Michelle Obama says she has focused on three things: keeping life normal for her young daughters, electing her husband, and discussing the work-life balance with women around the country. The spouses of service members captured her attention during a roundtable with working mothers, and she later hosted her first military-focused event in Fayetteville in May, a day before the North Carolina primary.
