Rep. Capps Lauds Obama’s Presidential Debate Performance

Rep. Lois Capps released the following statement after watching Wednesday night’s final 2008 presidential debate:

“Sen. (Barack) Obama has shown throughout this long campaign that he has the judgment, vision and temperament to lead this country in these very troubled times. We saw again tonight a demonstration of his mastery of the issues and ability to deal forthrightly with the tough challenges facing our country.

“I particularly appreciate his consistent appeal to what (Abraham) Lincoln called ‘the better nature of our angels.’ It has been extremely unfortunate to see the increasing harshness that has overtaken our political discourse, especially in the last few years.

“We really need a leader to bring America together so we can meet the huge challenges facing our country. Barack Obama has shown that he is willing and able to be that leader.”

Sarah Ethington is campaign manager of the Friends of Lois Capps 2008 campaign.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
