An Iraq vet and a cowboy

Obama is being nominated by Iraq war veteran, Michael Wilson:

“I’ve seen war up close… not as some political slogan or a think tank theory…

“He has the courage to talk to our enemies and consult with our allies…

“A president who will respect our veterans when they get home instead of letting them languish when they get home…

He is being seconded by Sen. Ken Salazar of Colorado… complete with cowboy hat.

“Welcome to the West where we are building a new Democratic majority.”
