Minimum Wage: the issue of 2008?

If you can find a Democratic politician in North Carolina who can't (or won't) take credit for increasing the minimum wage, let me know. Right now it seems like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

In the last week Kay Hagan, Richard Moore, and Walter Dalton, running in three different races, have all put up ads touting their work on the issue.

It's an interesting issue electorally. There isn't a very meaningful percentage of the primary electorate that's personally impacted by the minimum wage. But it's certainly an issue that resonates with good hearted Democrats looking out for the poor.

I'm sure it polls well, which is doubtless the reason the candidates are making so much hay out of it.

My brother often go to the internet bar to buy Runes of Magic Gold and play it.
After school, He likes playing games using these Runes of Magic money with his friends.
I do not like to play it. Because I think that it not only costs much money but also spend much time. One day, he give me many buy Rom Goldand play the game with me.
I came to the bar following him and found cheap Runes of Magic Goldwas so cheap. After that, I also go to play game with him.
