My letter to the presidential candidates

Remember: unlike the outgoing Bush administration, these candidates need the support of the two-thirds of Americans who oppose the war in Iraq.
Put on the pressure!
Senators Clinto and Obama
I am not a supporter or even a democrat.
At this time I will support any candidate who can guarantee a swift and complete withdrawal of soldiers and contractors from Iraq and an end to the occupation there. This is the will of the majority of Iraqi and American citizens. So Ralph Nader will get my vote again. Unless eiter one of you is willing to move toward the center from the rightwing position you are both holding at this time re the Iraq occupation.

Let's make the bloated new embassy into homes for Iraqis who have lost theirs. Then we would not have an excuse to leave thousands of soldiers there to protect it!
