Now lets take a look at some of the political animals listed on their founders council…
Nicco Mele, Washington, DC. Internet strategist and webmaster for Dean 2004, founder
echoditto.com consulting services.
Hamilton Jordan, Atlanta, Georgia. Carter White House Chief of Staff, writer, investor; focused on for-profit and non-profit start-ups; most importantly, father of three.
Tom Stroock, Casper, Wyoming. Former GOP State Chairman, State Senator for 17 years, U.S. Ambassador to Guatemala (1989-93).
Gerald Rafshoon, Washington, DC. Former media advisor and White House communications director, film and television producer, father, grandfather.
Angus King, Brunswick, Maine. Former two-term independent Governor of Maine, teacher, businessman, attorney, father.
So a Dean machiner, 2 Carter Admin alumni, a Wyoming Party guy for the republicans and a guy who seems to have been as near as I can tell a political fence sitting independent.
This hardly seems Suspect at all
and we also should point out that Hamilton Jordan backed Perot in 92 which many folks view as a spoiler to target the republican party.
Now on to what these good folks believe in.
Unity08 divides issues facing the country into two categories: Crucial Issues – on which America’s future safety and welfare depend; and Important Issues – which, while vital to some, will not, in our judgment, determine the fate or future of the United States.
In our opinion, Crucial Issues include: Global terrorism, our national debt, our dependence on foreign oil, the emergence of India and China as strategic competitors and/or allies, nuclear proliferation, global climate change, the corruption of Washington’s lobbying system, the education of our young, the health care of all, and the disappearance of the American Dream for so many of our people.
By contrast, we consider gun control, abortion and gay marriage important issues, worthy of debate and discussion in a free society, but not issues that should dominate or even crowd our national agenda.
In our opinion – since the disintegration of the Soviet Union – our political system seems to have focused more attention on the “important issues” than the “crucial issues.” One result: The political parties have been built to address the interests of their “base” but have failed to address the realities that impact most Americans.
so an organization full of known democrat operatives at the top levels, and with a position that they should take a position is wanting to run a One Democrat/One Republican ticket
