Paul Hackett for Congress

Readers may notice that we have posted a link for contributing to Paul Hackett's campaign to be elected to Congress from Ohio's 2nd district in the southwestern part of the state.

The choices in that district are stark. One one hand we have Hackett, a Democrat going up against Republican Jean Schmidt.

We don't know anything about how good his campaign structure is, but Hackett is THE perfect candidate. He is veteran of the Iraq and participated in the Fallujah campaign. Although he had a law-practice going, he re-upped in the Marine Corps reserve in order to take on a 7-month stint in Iraq. Get it - this guy is a certified hero! We understand that he is articulate, too.

What's more, he has to right position on the war, Social Security, health care and a host of other issues. We urge everyone to go to Hackett's web site to learn more, and, hopefully, to volunteer.

Jean Schmidt, his opponent, is more than willing to be a good lap dog for the Bush administration. She has already shown her willingness to belly up to the pig trough in Ohio, and there will be more of that if she is sent to Washington.

Progressives need to put their money where their mouth is and help Hackett turn his election into a referendum on the direction of our state and nation.
