Sign the Petition: Help Draft Your Favorite Democrat to Run for President
Republican leaders are once again threatening a government shutdown. Even though the last one accomplished nothing, and even though it cost us $24 billion.

President Obama put it best when he said:
"Climate change is a fact. And when our children's children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did."

Burger King made headlines recently when it announced it was acquiring the much smaller Canadian donut chain Tim Horton's, but that it would use an "inversion" to declare the entire company "Canadian," and thus avoid US taxes.

After the disastrous foreign policy record of the Bush-Cheney administration -- including launching an unnecessary war in Iraq -- it takes an unbelievable amount of chutzpah for Dick Cheney to lecture President Obama...about Iraq.
And yet, that's exactly what Dick Cheney has done, again and again and again.
Taking foreign policy advice from Dick Cheney is like getting fire safety tips from an arsonist. And we're not going to do it.
