Yes We Can - I Endorse Obama


Obama Campaign Advertisement - Beginning Filmed In Springfield, Illinois

"It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to where we are today, but we have just begun. Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today". -Barack Obama-
Despite my love of all things Clinton, including Hillary, I must endorse Barack Obama.

I feel Senator Obama has the greatest chance of winning in November.

Hillary is a fine choice, but too many people have an irrationally strong opposition to seeing her elected in November. I don't know what she did to deserve such hatred, and why she has failed to muster support from independents, swing voters, and young voters but she has.

Senator Obama has a better chance of being elected, and could benefit from bringing Hillary on board as his VP pick.

Obama is young, good looking, very intelligent, very well educated, has excellent communication skills, has legislative experience, recognizes the multifaceted nature of complex problems, sounds honest, sounds inclusive, and sounds practical. He's wisely chosen not to go too specific during the primaries, which is a course I'm sure he'll abandon when forced to do so in the general election. I suspect he will offer a move toward the center that Republicans, and Democrats will find as an acceptable change from the derisive and dishonest approach so rampant in the winner takes all atmosphere in Washington these last seven years.


Let's Elect Barack Obama President!

Will he solve all the nation's problems? Probably not, but I do believe he will surround himself with a highly qualified staff, and will make slow, and positive incremental changes which will head the ship of state back toward confronting the task of tackling problems which face the middle class.

Obama has captured the imagination of better educated voters, younger voters, the black community, and middle class whites. He's mustered the support of Unions, and I feel with the right VP pick he could gather up additional support from women, older voters, and the Hispanic vote - let's see perhaps Hillary?

Men, and women, black, white, and Hispanic, moderates, and liberals, Middle Class, and poor would be able to support an Obama-Clinton ticket.

An Obama-Clinton ticket would be capable of winning, and then leading the nation out of the darkness it has been plunged into, and back onto the course it had been upon before the national nightmare of the Bush years.

Is it time for a change? Most certainly! Obama characterizes that change better than any other candidate at this time which is why I endorse him.

Please vote!

HRC will never accept the number two spot and I don't think Obama needs her. However, HRC will need Obama if (when) she is nominated. Not sure who Obama would pick to run with, but I'm afraid it's an academic question at this point.
