I just watched Barack Obama speaking in Chicago. Wow! If Hillary is grace, Obama is fire! Couldn’t they please, please come together as running mates for the November election?
Obama doesn’t need ads or music videos featuring others; all he has to do is address the people himself.
I still find Hillary more sympathetic, more experienced, perhaps even wiser, and she is the one I support.
But if Obama wins, I hope he goes all the way to the White House and brings about the changes he is promising.
He looked so heroic as he addressed his supporters in Chicago. Handsome, confident, impassioned, he gave a rousing speech. “We are the change,” he said. And the people roared their approval.
I have never seen Martin Luther King, only read some of his speeches. But today I saw a spellbinder: Obama!
I hope he truly believes every word he spoke — and retains this belief for years to come.
I did wonder when he spoke of raising teachers’ pay, whether they are paid entirely by the federal government for him to make such a promise. He also spoke of reducing dependence on oil and tapping other energy sources which made me wonder, “Haven’t we heard that before from other leaders?” But I guess leaders have to make large promises for they have to inspire people.
And if Obama or Hillary can carry out even some of their promises, that will be great.
I still wish they would be running mates. If Obama has the vision and Hillary the wisdom that comes from experience, why don’t they realise they would be the dream ticket?
