Harford for Hillary

Posted by Annie on February 11, 2008

I haven’t heard any specifics about events for Hillary Clinton in Harford County, but I wanted to pass along a way to get involved in her campaign.  At Maryland Headquarters of Hillary Clnton’s website you can volunteer at the Baltimore phone bank or “Become a local volunteer for Hillary” by filling out a short online form with your contact information and what you are interested in doing.  I would hope that if you do this it would connect you with others involved in the Harford for Hillary movement, as I know that one exists!

Democratic Party Candidate Forums

Posted by Annie on September 6, 2007

Come visit the Young Democrats of Harford County this fall for one of our monthly meet-ups!  Our next four meetings will focus on the candidates vying for the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  There will be presentations by representatives of each candidate, and then the floor will be open for debate and discussion of that candidate’s political platform.  All are encouraged to attend and participate.  Is your mind already made up?  Then please come and let us know why!  Frank and open discussion is always welcome (and is preferrable!).   Meet-ups are at 7:00 p.m. at Sean Bolans in Bel Air, and the upcoming dates are:

September 19th: Spotlight on Barack Obama

October 17th: Spotlight on Hillary Clinton

November 14th: Spotlight on John Edwards

January 16th: Mock debate between all candidates…one month before Maryland’s Democratic primary!

We would prefer the opportunity to give ALL of the Democratic candidates an equal chance to make their beliefs and platform known, but due to the relatively short amount of time remaining before the primary, this schedule seems to work best.  We look forward to seeing you at one of the candidate forums!  Please comment here if you have any questions or would like more information.

Young Americans are more progressive

Young Americans Are Leaning Left, New Poll Finds

by Adam Nagourney and Megan Thee of The New York Times

Young Americans are more likely than the general public to favor a government-run universal health care insurance system, an open-door policy on immigration and the legalization of gay marriage, according to a New York Times/CBS News/MTV poll. The poll also found that they are more likely to say the war in Iraq is heading to a successful conclusion.

The poll offers a snapshot of a group whose energy and idealism have always been as alluring to politicians as its scattered focus and shifting interests have been frustrating. It found that substantially more Americans ages 17 to 29 than four years ago are paying attention to the presidential race. But they appeared to be really familiar with only two of the candidates, Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, both Democrats.

They have continued a long-term drift away from the Republican Party. And although they are just as worried as the general population about the outlook for the country and think their generation is likely to be worse off than that of their parents, they retain a belief that their votes can make a difference, the poll found.

More than half of Americans ages 17 to 29 — 54 percent — say they intend to vote for a Democrat for president in 2008. They share with the public at large a negative view of President Bush, who has a 28 percent approval rating with this group, and of the Republican Party. They hold a markedly more positive view of Democrats than they do of Republicans.
