Red State Democrats for Obama - The Ground Shifts

Interesting column (The Obama Opportunity) in today's Wall Street Journal by three promiment Democrats from so-called red states: Ms. Napolitano is governor of Arizona, Ms. Sebelius is governor of Kansas, and Ms. McCaskill is a U.S. senator from Missouri.
Once in a generation, an opportunity comes along -- not just for the Democratic Party, but for the United States of America -- to build a new majority for change. Barack Obama's candidacy offers us that opportunity. As Democrats, and as Americans, we must seize it.
This is momentous because these are not the "celebrity"-type endorsements of a Maria Shriver, Oprah or Susan Eisenhower--although those are hugely important as well.

They are from moderate Democrats that have proven successful Republican leaning states.

Did you feel the ground shift?
