The Candidates and Disability IssuesJan 09 11:55
Is there a correlation between candidates showing up at the American Association of People with Disabilities’ Nov. 2 Presidential Forum and winning the New Hampshire primary? Maybe, says ADAPT organizer Mark Johnson: “Clinton came to the Forum, Obama didn't. McCain participated by phone, no other Republican candidate did [participate].”

Josie, as we all know money is the mother's milk of politics. I would add that bringing a power base to a candidate will gain her/his attention quickly. I watched the Iowa post caucus events and did not see one visibly disabled person on the candidates' dias. Unfortunately we as a population do not bring much to the table. Yes, we want our government sponsored programs to survive and expand, but what are we doing to ensure this outcome? Not much, I say. Going to a disibility rally in Washington, D.C. is a feel good exercise and may even get our face on national TV. It's not the same as getting directly involved with a local, state or national candidate and having a measure of influence on that candidate's policy issues. Politics is not a spectator event--to get our issues up front, we must join a team of our choice. I could go on, but I've made my point, that is to be counted you have to count, first. Charles
