On the heels of President Bush's recent trip to Africa, The ONE Campaign is asking its members to sign a petition asking all the presidential candidates (those still in the race) to pledge to visit Africa during their first term.
The ONE petition states:
As a voter in the 2008 Presidential election, I'm asking you to pledge to visit Africa during your first term in office. It is my hope that your trip will increase U.S.-African cooperation, save lives and help build a better, more secure future for millions of the world's poorest people.Smart. Good. Sense.
And, with 100,317 signers so far, The ONE campaign should find Teams McCain/Obama/Clinton to be quite receptive to their pledge.
