Oh brother! It's easy to have unity when you ban or chase off everyone who disagrees with you.LynneSin (1000+ posts) Thu Sep-18-08 10:47 AM
I've been a member of DU for 7 years and I'm sensing something I haven't seen for 7 years of DU.... Advertisements [?]I'm sensing Unity. I'm sensing that for the first time in 7 years all DU seems not only on the same page with this election but with the same enthusiasm. There's just something different about this election that I never felt with 2004; in fact the last time I really felt this was 1992 (which yes there was no DU but the excitement was just the same).
Am I the only person that is feeling this? I drive around and I'm seeing an overwhelming support for Obama. I hear people talk about him at work - talking positive about him. And here at DU, well we have Nader and McKinney both running on 3rd party progressive tickets and I see no one shouting "Damn this ticket I'm voting 3rd Party".
Something has changed. The Obama/Biden team is an inspiration that even I admit I couldn't quit get with a Kerry/Edwards or even a Gore/Lieberman ticket of elections past. There is truly a high level of excitement I thought I would never see after this primary season. But truly this year we are united as ever to take back this party!!

25. Very pleased with the way DU has come together
especially after the Hillary-Obama split. Man, that was hard to go through!
I think what really helps unity is success. We really feel we've got something going on this election. And the other side's got nothing.
