Hope/Change



Great video. I don't necessarily have the highest hopes, but this election is undeniably important. Even if Mr. Obama wins and turns out to have more style than substance, we will be better off. If he becomes president and the economy remains stagnant and the Iraq war continues to be a quagmire and gas prices remain high, we will still be better off. We will regain the respect of the world. We will have an experienced Vice-President who could step in at a moment's notice with full understanding of the issues facing our country. We will have a chance to keep the Supreme Court a more balanced entity and protect our democracy. We will have a leader who believes in the most important aspect of our country, the First Amendment and it's guarantees of the freedom of speech and the separation of church and state.

Or we could go with John McSame and Caribou Barbie. Just sayin'.

Great video and great commentary on your part. Everyone I know is nervous about this. I don't like the doubt. Hope--keep hope alive!

Caribou Barbie! LOL!
Someone asked me what I would do if McCain was elected. I told them that I would move back home to DC and make it my business to take care of him. I will be his personal trainer, nutritionist and meditation teacher. Whatever I have to do to make sure he stays healthy and Palin doesn't become President!
