I don’t believe either of the candidates has all the answers, or will be the perfect leader. I do believe that this election brings us a President who can replace the negative blanket of fear of – and contempt for – “the other” (as well as our Constitution) with the promise that a African-American man with a funny name who speaks in positive terms can rise to the highest office in the land lifted up by millions of “real Americans,” not just those with the traditional access to power.
It feels like a brand new day, and I’m pleased to be in it. I am so happy for our country.
Let’s replace the hate of 09/11/2001 with the hope of 11/04/2008.
