Barack Obama Boyfriend!

Oh my...
Well, let's just get one thing out in the open. I am a registered Republican. Have been for oh, let's see, 18 years? When I was 18 I voted for Reagan. Then I did my Democrat stint - along with my vegetarian/earth mama/rebel 'I will save the world' phase for quite a few years.. Then I had to work, work hard, be self sufficient and became self-employed. Alas, I also went back to being a Republican... Not that any of this has any 'true' relevance, but for the most part - I do not like Government regulations, or the government taking my hard earned dollars to feed an administrative bureaucracy. Ditto for the school systems. But that is another story...

Back to Barack....

I am so excited for Senator Barack Obama. I just read on the Google News Home page, that Obama Boyfriend will be accepting the Democratic Convention Nomination on August 28th - the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream' speech..

When I saw that I teared up! Wow! How darn awesome! What a great world we (finally) live in!

Sure, there's lots of room for growth, improvement and lessons to be learned.

But you go, Boyfriend.

Loving him.

Loving you for talking about this. We do live in an amazing country and change can happen. I feel honored that I'm here to witness this historic event.

I'm an Obamite...so I am totally thrilled!

I don't know how much the candidates' policies actually matter; what matters 'from the top' is setting the tone of the government. And I LOVE the tone Obama sets. Hopeful. Positive. Poised to take on challenges. Ready to restore relationships around the world. Those things I all like, no matter what else he is or isn't able to enact, since he's got a dingdong Congress to pull along behind him. (lol) I feel so excited that if he asked our country to do something---give up something, not just stay home and shop---I think we'd do it. Come up with a plan, boyfriend, we're with ya! Let's FIX something!
