CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - Not all the nation's ills can be blamed on President Bush, Democratic candidate Barack Obama said Wednesday as he called on Americans to change the nature of politics and institute more openness in government.

"Part of the problem here is not just George Bush and the White House," Obama told a crowd of hundreds gathered at a park in Cedar Falls. "We can't just change political parties and continue to do the same kind of things we've been doing. We can't just go about business as usual and think it's going to turn out differently."

Good for Obama. I have been liking what he has been saying lately.

I think this was after some older guy said (paraphrasing):

"I'm a bit of a cynic, but all I hear from you people is how you're going to change that and do this, but nothing ever happens!" and he went on.

I like those town hall meetings. I had to watch most of this one on CSPAN yesterday, otherwise I would have been there.

Sounds good, along with a congressional "President's Question Hour".

As much as we need one about restrictive Dog Laws, I suppose. ;)
