Just does not quite say it… now we have to work together, all of us, to make this the greatest nation on earth, with the best ideas, the most opportunity, lets change the world. Obama won just like I said he would. This will teach you guys not to doubt me when I am certain about something.
I was shocked and awed when one of my favorite public figures and maybe the most influential military mind of our times Colin Powell endorsed Obama.
As a former republican, I consider myself an independent now, I used to think that Powell could actually be the first minority president of the United States. I have always liked his character, his demeanor and his way of thinking.
We still got some time to go on this race, but the 100 and 75 thousand crowds in St Louis and Kansas City are another testament that Obama is being identified as the candidate that will lead the nation out of these horrible times of war and financial inestability.
I have been a conservative for many reasons in the past. However, ever since I heard the Obama name I have been intrigued by this man. Before you say that I am jumping in the bandwagon because he won Iowa and is looking pretty good for New Hampshire, I mentioned his name back in September of 05 and then wrote him an open letter in December of 06.
My friend Daniel just posted Obamas speech after Iowa, go check it out. He has been supporting him with badge which I am now going to do. I have been waiting for the correct moment to start spreading the word, and I believe now that a predominantly white state was able to vote for him over Hilary.
This country needs change, and right now out of both parties he is the candidate that looks to me like the face of change.
