Today our country faces unprecedented challenges both home and abroad, which for the past decade our political system has been unable or unwilling to address: a health care crisis, education reform, energy independence, economic inequality and instability, and global insecurity.   

This month offers the first chance for many Americans to take the first step toward choosing a leader who can transcend the partisanship, pettiness, and special interest politicking that has prevented us from overcoming the biggest challenges of our day.  

People from 20 states will vote on February 5th for their party’s nominee, with the remaining country following soon afterwards.  Regardless of your party affiliation or political disposition, this provides each of us a truly incredible opportunity: the chance to help shape our country’s future. 

Sign up here to pledge to vote in the upcoming presidential primary and encourage your friends and family to do the same.

      Rolled over next door and placed my vote.  Happy about Obama, dismayed over Prop 8.

      Let's extend this commitment to the the general election. Even if your candidate drops out of the race or does not become your party's nominee, commit that you will still vote in the general election. Our future depends on it.

      During the 2004 campaign I was in Spain and had the opportunity to speak to many Spaniards about US Politics. They had very strong points of view and were closely following our elections. Since the president is considered "leader of the free world" they had a very strong vested interest in who became the US president. They were totally floored when I explained to them that approximately 1/2 of all elegible voters in the US chose not to vote! How could that be? they wanted to know. When the whole world depends on us to elect a good and decent person as president, we have people who don't even bother to vote!! The Spaniards I spoke to felt their daily lives were impacted by decisions made by the US government, and they would have loved to have been able to have a say in who would lead our world as US president, and people who did have that say did not vote. They were just astonished! And, I was massively embarrassed.

      Please Vote!! Your life and your future depends on it! The people of the world are counting on you!

      It's been great to see people excited about this election--I hope it keeps up through the primaries/caucuses and into the general election. Vote!
