YES WE CAN!

I'm gonna keep this short because I'd like to be in bed before midnight for the first time all week. I'll write more tomorrow when I've had some time to absorb all that happened tonight.

Let me just say that tonight I fell in love with our country all over again. I found within myself the passion I had when I went to DC in 1993. I remember why I went in the first place. I was inspired and moved to tears more than once.

Watching Barack Obama accept the Democratic nomination for President with 400 other people, all of them strangers, was incredible. For the first time in 8 years, I am hopeful for our country again. I know that Barack is the right candidate at the right time.

He IS the Real Thing. Honestly though, I don't need to tell you that. I have a pretty bad poker face, as Sam told Josh.

  1. I couldn't agree more! I was discussing it with my Mom and told her I just didn't know what to do with all these feeling of "hope." They are new and strange and frankly a little scary.

    Glad I found your blog (via Living Oprah). Will tune in for the next opinion. :)

  2. Tourguide Jenn,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Don't you just love Living Oprah?!

    You know, I remember having all these inspirational and hopeful feelings about our country once before in 1992 when Bill Clinton was running for President. But this time, it's different. They're even more intense now and I believe that Obama has the opportunity (that Bill never had) to truly unite the country.

    Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll be back!
