Barack Obama

Barack Obama

I’d like to use this small, rickety soapbox to say that I want Barack Obama to be our next president. I read (okay, listened to the audiobook of) The Audacity of Hope, his second memoir, and was thoroughly impressed. A lot of the book analyzes the current situation of American politics and talks about how it could/should be, and a lot of it is practical. It’s also clear in the book that Barack just wants to bring good to the world—not just to his constituents or the people who gave him money. Plus he’s really smart, which is something I’d like to see in our next Commander in Chief.

Barack’s campaign is really grass-roots; it’s raised a great deal of its money in increments of $10 to $50. Saturday June 9 they’re having a Walk for Change where volunteers will knock on doors and get people excited about the campaign. I’ll be one of them! I encourage you to find a Walk for Change in your neighborhood.
