January has been the month of Barbara Boxer.
While other Democrats of national prominence have surrendered to the agenda of the ruling Republican elites, Barbara Boxer has stood toe to toe with the Bush Administration and given a strong voice to the concerns of progressive Americans. Senator Boxer faced down Condoleeza Rice, who expected to treat the United States Senate as a rubber stamp. Furthermore, Barbara Boxer was the only Senator to demand accountability for irregularities in Ohio’s voting in the 2004 presidential election.
Barbara Boxer has a proud history of doing what’s right for America, even when it isn’t the easy thing to do. When it came to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, Senator Barbara Boxer was one of the few people in Congress who perceived the dishonesty in the Bush Administration’s push for war. She was one of the proud few to vote against giving George W. Bush authorization to invade Iraq and wage war across the Middle East. History has vindicated her stand.
There is no one in America who has the combination of intelligence, experience, integrity, and devotion to the progressive bedrock values of freedom, fairness and truth that Barbara Boxer possesses. A presidential campaign with Barbara Boxer as the nominee of the Democratic Party will give America the strong voice for honest progressive ideals that we never got in 2004.
For that reason, we are proud to announce the arrival of Boxer 2008, the first web site dedicated to promoting a campaign of Barbara Boxer for President.
Senator Boxer has yet to announce whether she is interested in running for President, so it’s important for those of us who appreciate her courageous stands against the lawless nationalism of the Republican Party to show our support. The Boxer 2008 web site is just in its infancy, but it promises to grow into a fantastic resource for citizens who want to restore America to the position of honor it once occupied in the world.
