As I write this, Sen. Barack Obama is starting his speech in Chicago. This is a historic occasion that I’m proud to have witnessed. Now is the time for our country to come together and undo the damage done over the last eight years. Now that the election is done, I feel as if a weight of uncertainty has been lifted and hope that things will get better over the next four years. I think Sen. Obama will be a centrist and be able to work with both parties.
Of course, at this time CNN projects that the Democratic party now has at least 56 seats in the Senate. That helps.
Every time I hear him give a speech, I can’t help but think that President elect Obama is a great speaker. I don’t know if he writes his own speeches, but there good. His acceptance speech is very inspiring and the right thing to say to the public. He’s NOT the “Socialist” the McCain campaign painted him out to be and he’s addressing the public to thank his supporters and assure his detractors.
After the last two presidential elections, I wondered if the nation would ever change direction. This election, with such a clear victory, give me renewed hope.
Say that reminds me, Will Stephen Baldwin leave America? I hope not, but will wave Bye-Bye if he does.
Music I’m listening to now:
Nothing at the moment.
