Humility. Endurance. Leadership.

Imagine a city council where the two previous two chairmen have been assassinated....

Despite these threats, despite the IEDs and the suicide bombers, these men and women still show up to work, are still committed to a new Iraq. And that, my friends, is the value of endurance.

I see the impossible become reality every day in Iraq.

Go see the rest. You won't be sorry.

Interesting that towards the end of the narrative he says something along the lines of "the Senator for Illinois is right, it is time for a change"...yet at the very end, it says the message was paid for by the Republican Party.

"the Senator for Illinois is right, it is time for a change"...

Context.

The Representative from Illinois is addressing the crying need to give Iraq the chance to build its future.

The Senator from Illinois is merely addressing his crying need to be elected POTUS.

Then let's hope they drop in here after they see the ad.

Hmmmmmm -- how do you get linked by a TV station, anyway?
