On the eve of the historic inauguration of Barack Obama, I would like to plead with Democrats to unite in full support of our new President. There may be disagreements on issues, but as hard as it may be, we must give Obama our full support. The situation is too dire to waylay him with small differences. I am speaking to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and progressive talk radio hosts and liberal bloggers and those analyzing every move he has made so far and myself. Stop jockeying for position. Stop highlighting our differences. Let's focus on our shared views and shared concerns and let him fight the Republicans if necessary, not us.
