MoveOn.Org Backs Barack Obama For President

MoveOn.Org has announced that as a group they will endorse Barack Obama as the next President. Obama won overwhelmingly with 70.4% of the vote compared to 29.6% for Hillary Clinton. The group claims to have over 1.7 million members in the Super Tuesday states. “Our members’ endorsement of Senator Obama is a clear call for a new America at this critical moment in history,”’s Executive Director Eli Pariser said. “Seven years of the disastrous policies of the Bush Administration have left the country desperate for change. We need a President who will bring to bear the strong leadership and vision required to end the war in Iraq, provide health care to every American, deal with our climate crisis, and restore America’s standing in the world. The enormity of the challenges require someone who knows how to inspire millions to get involved to change the direction of our country, and someone who will be willing to change business as usual in Washington. Senator Barack Obama has proved he can and will be that President.” Pariser said, “Barack Obama has our members ‘fired up and ready to go.'” Obama has responded by saying, “In just a few years, the members of MoveOn have once again demonstrated that real change comes not from the top-down, but from the bottom-up. From their principled opposition to the Iraq war – a war I also opposed from the start – to their strong support for a number of progressive causes, MoveOn shows what Americans can achieve when we come together in a grassroots movement for change. I thank them for their support and look forward to working with their members in the weeks and months ahead.”
