Obama spoke in Richmond last night. (also - so wait - was Kaine the first governor to endorse him????? am I wrong on that?)
Think of what we could do with the $265 million a day we are spending in Iraq -- right here in Richmond ," the first-term senator continued. "Think of the schools we could build and the roads and the bridges and the hospitals. We need to bring to a close this sad chapter in American history, and begin a chapter that passes the might of our military to the freedom of our diplomacy and the power of our alliances. And while we are at it, we can close down Guantanamo and we can restore habeas corpus and we can lead with our ideas and our values," he said emphatically.
