Yes We Can!--Si, Se Puede
Obama's speech in New Hampshire.
Not in a longtime have I heard so eloquent a speech--not since I first heard Obama speak at the Democratic Convention in 2004. Barack Obama is the kind of leader I want for my children, my country. Not only do I agree with his policies and ideals, he has the comportment, the dignity, I expect from a president, and haven't seen in too long.
The Audacity of Hope.
"In the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope"--Barack Obama
Our country and the world need leaders that can heal, unite, inspire. I believe Obama is that kind of leader.
