It gives me chills every time.
I was always drawn to Barack Obama for his charisma and inspiring attitude. I took a good long look at his policies and those of Hillary Clinton, but I am willing and ready to say that I truly, deeply want Barack Obama to be our next president.
Beside the fact that his policies go along with everything I believe in, there is something special about this man. I feel it in my gut when he speaks. He is not here to play a game. He is here to change this country. He will make a difference. He could change the way we think about politics. I can imagine being inspired by our own president and striving to mimic his example. That would be a much happier country than the one I know now.
His wife Michelle also seems to be an amazing and admirable woman. I want a family like theirs to represent what this country is really about.
I want change.
I hate that people are trying to criticize him about his use of the word HOPE. Isn't that something we could all use a little more of? What have we come to when we are even cynics about hope?
"In the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope."
I truly believe this man can unite this country. I am more emotionally involved now than I planned to be. But hey, caring matters.
"Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for CHANGE."
Yes we can.
