This might be more important than you expect. The One Voice campaign is simply trying to unite voices from diverse political places for a common cause.

“WE BELIEVE that in the best American tradition of helping others help themselves, now is the time to join with other countries in a historic pact for compassion and justice to help the poorest people of the world overcome AIDS and extreme poverty. WE RECOGNIZE that a pact including such measures as fair trade, debt relief, fighting corruption and directing additional resources for basic needs – education, health, clean water, food, and care for orphans – would transform the futures and hopes of an entire generation in the poorest countries, at a cost equal to just one percent more of the US budget. WE COMMIT ourselves - one person, one voice, one vote at a time - to make a better, safer world for all.”

I watched their commercial on TIVO. Bono was on it, which drew me to it. It started with liberal celebrity after liberal celebrity, but in the middle was Pat Robertson, TV evangelist, conservative presidential candidate a few years ago. It isn't too late to sign up. It makes sense to me. I signed up. Go to Thanks.
