Demo Natl. Committee Chair Trots Out Big Gun -

Obama Presidential Survey focuses on economic conditions

It ain't over 'til it's over. - Yogi Berra

Are you better off now than you were two years ago?

Who wants to know?

Governor Tim Kaine, Democratic National Committee Chairman,
former Governor of Virginia, former Lieutenant Governor,
Mayor of Richmond, an economist trained at the University of
Missouri, and a native of Minneapolis, that's who.

A sample of his pep talk:

"We cannot allow our government to once again fall victim to
the domestic and international failures that exemplified
Repubican rule during the George W. Bush years. We must
continue forward with the same energy that generated our
electoral victories in 2008 and our successful and historic
fight for health insurance reform."

Survey respondents, identified by code number and
registration, are asked to rate President Obama's
performance in settling the economic hash, health care
reform, foreign policy, the war in Afghanistan, handing over
responsibility to the Iraqi people, and energy policies.

The survey asks for a ranking of 13 priorities in their
level of importance.

They are the economic situation, regulation of financial
institutions and markets, lowering unemployment, dealing
with Iran, fighting terrorism, war in Afghanistan, handing
over responsiblity to the Iraqi people, nuclear
proliferation, improving education, energy independence,
America's image in the world community, and dealing with
North Korea.

Democratic Party priorities are to be ranked 1 through 5 in
these areas:

* Organizng grassroot support

* Raising funds for 2010 Congressional election

* Electing Democrats on the state and local level

* Reelecting President Obama in 2012

* Republicans' "obstructionist tactics"
