First and foremost! WAOH! Obama won the Iowa Caucus with an unquestionable majority! I have not been able to sleep and still have shivers of excitement! This must be the America that we all dreamed about. The one that MLK envisioned decades ago.
Congratulations Obama! Way to Go!
Last night, Jan 04, 2008 was and I date it for memory, what I would call historical and phenomenal. The “baddest” underdog in the house took the world by storm and had most of the analysts and reporters totally baffled and unprepared for what unfolded in the nations eyes. It was not only a monumental accomplishment for Senator Barrack Obama, but one for the nation, the blacks across the world and the Democratic party notwithstanding. Remember that Obama’s decision alone to run the race gave new live and bred hope in the party’s campaign future. Even though somewhere along the lines, we all feared it would be an election based on race or gender, but those lines were clearly defied yesterday. Is it possible that we are getting to a point where the divider is not our skin but our issues? For now, I’ll just let it sink and enjoy the moment.
And then there was Obama’s speech! My Goodness! I just feel like catching the next flight to New Hampshire to give the guy a big hug. The speech of “hope” in my opinion just swapped places with the famous “MLK- I have a Dream” speech. You would have thought Obama had private conversations with all the former presidents, dead or alive before taking the stage. With that kind of charisma and momentum, we can forge on and dream anything for our White House, knowing that it is Achievable. This was just the kind of energy we needed at the dawn of this new year to jumpstart our engines without fear or reservation.
It’s been a good race so far. Loving every bit of this…..
