Yes We Can

The boy and I went to see Barack Obama at a rally in Wilmington, DE yesterday. There were 20,000 people there. Very impressive. Senator Obama was impressive as well. The boy asked lots of appropriate questions like, "why does he keep talking about change?" and "why is everyone clapping?" 

And as further testament to Obama fever, the following video is making waves. You're probably only going to be inspired by this stuff if you're an Obama supporter. I like the guy, so I find it moving. Check it out. 




I like Will.i.am's description of the creation of the song and the video. 48 hours start to finish. Very impressive!

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Faraway, So Close is officially endorsing the candidacy of Barack Obama for President of the United States in 2008. There may not be much distance between Obama and Clinton in terms of policy, but I believe he'll be able to get more done. Both are solid on the "what" but Obama has won me over on the "how." Besides, do we need another chapter in the Bush-Clinton-Bush rotation? End the cycle!

I like the passion, I like the message. I don't like the "change" he is proposing. But, let's give the liberals a try. See what happens. I love you Dave!!

Wow! I think whether you're going to vote for him or not, that is a moving speech and an amazing song. Thanks for posting it.

Your late primary might decide who is the nominee. And with the amount of time between your primary and the rest of the primaries in early March, you might get a taste of what it's like to live in Iowa around caucus time. Have fun with that.
