Here is Obama's amazing speech if you missed it:
It gave my mom and I goosebumps and on several occasions all in our family who gathered to watch the speech burst out in applause. I have such hope! Let us carry our enthusiasm to November!
And congratulations to Hillary Clinton for running a death-defying campaign. That woman knows how to fight. It was wonderful to finally see a woman get so far, however I could not support her because of the type of person she is. I would love to have a female president however I do not think that we should vote based on gender or race.
That said, I feel that Obama has clinched the nomination based on his rhetoric, his charm, his intelligence, his inspiring words, and, for me at least, his ability to articulate his thoughts in both the written word and speech. As I mentioned in a previous post, I wanted him to be our nation's leader after having read his book Dreams from My Father written before he was even in politics. I have faith in him and in his wisdom and clear vision.
Thank you, Barack Obama!
melissa - Hey girl! I keep forgetting to reply to your comments. So why again do you have a paper to do over the summer? Is it for a class you already finished? I ask because I've never heard of that here!
morjana - Thank you kindly for your concern and your kind words, sweetheart! My idiot doctor called and asked, "You don't have asthma, do you?" and I said "well, I don't know, but I know the smoke was getting to me. Should I have an inhaler on hand in case there's another fire?" and the woman didn't even listen and said that I should make an appointment when I'm sick and need an inhaler, lol. But in the future, I should probably get tested!
