Those of us who care about animals and animal welfare will be thrilled to hear that the Humane Society Legislative Fund, which lobbies for animal welfare legislation -- and goodness knows that animals can always use the help -- has broken with a tradition of not taking a stand in Presidential races. This year the HSLF is endorsing the Barack Obama-Joe Biden ticket for President and Vice-President of the United States.
Read their thoughtful reasoning on HSLF's Mike Markarian's blog, and see what's behind their unprecedented decision to come forward for Obama-Biden. Be very proud that our candidates have such good records when it comes to humane treatment for all animals. I think we've seen enough about Palin's horrible record in these matters to know that the Republicans would be bad news indeed for animals.
