Rights Groups Condemn Sudanese National Election Conditions

Just a quick note here. Is it just me or does anyone else notice that Obama has something to push on the entire world?
Just a thought.

Human rights groups are sharply criticizing the Sudanese elections, even though there are three more days of voting.    
The Enough Project, Save Darfur Coalition, Genocide Intervention Network and Humanity United held a joint teleconference Monday.  
“The national elections are a tremendous lost opportunity for Sudan,” says John Norris, head of the Enough Project at the Center for American Progress.    
The Obama administration has a special envoy for Sudan, General Scott Gration.  He took part in efforts to get the elections back on track when main opposition parties dropped out of the vote.
Mark Lotwis, acting president of the Save Darfur Coalition, wants President Obama to take a firm stand on the elections.
The rights groups plan to hold daily briefings this week on the latest developments in the Sudanese elections.
