Dear President Obama,

You need to stop delaying the end of DON'T ASK DON'T TELL.  It is
obscene that you as commander-in-chief are overseeing the removal of
some of our brightest and best soldiers.
Almost every gay forum in which I am involved is dispirited because
of your lack of forceful leadership in this regard -- many of these
worked hard to get you elected and some gave generously. 
Your press secretary calls us Professional Liberals.  He touts that we
have nowhere else to go. 
We might stay home!
I have voted in every presidential election since I turned voting
age.  That record would be a sad 'correctness' to support injustice
were I to vote for you right now, and indeed, in almost every other
register, I admire you greatly.

Louie --

Eighteen years ago, shortly after graduating from law school, I
helped lead a voter registration campaign in Chicago that
generated record turnout on Election Day.

That experience taught me one of the most important lessons I
ever learned as a community organizer: When people promise that
they'll do something -- like voting -- they are far more likely
to do it.

That's why one key part of our Vote 2010 plan this year is to
get folks like you from across the country to commit to vote,
to make sure we get as many people as we can to cast their
ballots this fall.

But getting the commitments we need starts with your own
promise to make it to the polls and cast your ballot.

Will you please commit to vote in the 2010 elections?

Over the next 82 days, volunteers across the country will spend
countless hours calling voters and knocking on their doors,
asking them the same question.

And you can bet that I am counting on you to join them in
talking to voters in your community.

This election offers a stark choice. We Democrats are hard at
work trying to move America forward, repairing a decade of
damage and growing an economy based on the Main Street values
of hard work and responsibility.

We've fought for and won historic reforms to our health care
system, a victory 100 years in the making, and to Wall Street,
the most sweeping overhaul of the financial system since the
Great Depression.

But after years of policies that landed us in the worst
recession since the 1930's, the Republicans who got us there
have not come up with anything different from the policies of
George W. Bush.

We simply cannot afford to go backwards or let them repeal our
reforms. And making sure we can continue moving forward starts
with your own promise to cast your ballot in these elections.

Please commit to vote this fall:


Thank you,

President Barack Obama
