She has more maxed-out, executive-level donors than either Obama or Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) and has pulled in $3.9 million from donors associated with the health-care industry, more than any other candidate. - Andy Chen

Michael Meacher: This war on terrorism is bogus | Politics | The Guardian - http://www.guardian.co.uk/politic...
The conclusion of all this analysis must surely be that the "global war on terrorism" has the hallmarks of a political myth propagated to pave the way for a wholly different agenda - the US goal of world hegemony, built around securing by force command ov - Andy Chen

Waving Goodbye to Hegemony: China, Europe and the US in the New World Order - http://www.japanfocus.org/product...
U.S. hegemony of the world will soon be divided by the new "Big Three": The E.U., China and itself, while the "second world" will be the geopolitical marketplace that will decide which will lead the 21st century. - Andy Chen

She's Always A Victim | By Andrew Sullivan - http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_dai...
"Every so often I just wish that it were a little more of an even playing field but, you know, I play on whatever field is out there." Clinton has more privilege, more clout, more intrinsic unearned advantages in this race than any non-incumbent Democrat - Andy Chen

Hillary's candidacy represents the polar opposite of what Dean built as a candidate and party chair: her campaign is dominated by an inner circle of top strategists, with little room for grassroots input; it hasn't adapted well to new Internet tools like - Andy Chen

Americans are good people. They really are willing to make sacrifices, roll up their sleeves, and tackle theirs and the world's toughest problems. But we know they will not do so if they have so many good reasons to distrust their leaders and the system - Andy Chen

"We are the ones we have been waiting for" - http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_dai...
The Clinton model - exemplified by the Human Rights Campaign - is: give us some big donor checks, we'll hire a lobbyist (if you're lucky), and we'll work the Democratic party establishment to give you your equality (which somehow never happens). Meanwhile - Andy Chen

Begrudging His Bedazzling - New York Times - http://www.nytimes.com/2008...
Beating on the press is the lamest thing you can do. It is only because of the utter open-mindedness of the press that Hillary can lose 11 contests in a row and still be treated as a contender. - Andy Chen

Louis Bayard reviews "Reasons to Believe," by John Marks. American evangelicals | Salon Books - http://www.salon.com/books...
Faith can be, and often is, an engine for positive social change. And it's why, on the question of faith-based initiatives, I'm ambivalent. I see the objections of the people who are wary of the collusion between church and state. But I've seen for myself - Andy Chen

The record is that the senator's one single attempt at policy implementation - healthcare reform - was an enormous failure in which her own arrogance, secrecy and paranoia derailed universal healthcare for a decade. On the most critical foreign policy dec - Andy Chen

Digg, Wikipedia, and the myth of Web 2.0 democracy. - By Chris Wilson - Slate Magazine - http://www.slate.com/id...
While both sites effectively function as oligarchies, they are still democratic in one important sense. Digg and Wikipedia's elite users aren't chosen by a corporate board of directors or by divine right. They're the people who participate the most. Despi - Andy Chen

Barbara Ehrenreich: Unstoppable Obama - Politics on The Huffington Post - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/barbara...

AlterNet: How Obama Could Create a Long-Term Democratic Majority - http://www.alternet.org/module...
If I thought Barack Obama were simply an empty suit, I'd be skeptical too. Like any political leader, he has his weaknesses. I wish he'd deferred less to the senior Senate leadership on issues like Iraq. But then I look at his record engaging and bringing - Andy Chen
