The Democratic Party’s Presidential nomination is ours and the next step is the presidency of the United States of America ..THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGING!!!
Today could be the day that Barack Obama, a black man, a young, black man, finally clinches the Presidential nomination of the Democratic Party for the first time ever in the history of the United States!
Will I watch the first black president of the United States, the first black first lady and the first black family walk onto a stage in St.Paul, Minnesota later this evening to cheers and screams of happiness from a predominatly white audience?
Have I and will I continue to watch the hopes and dreams of a people, of a country become automatically embodied in the life and work of one man,once again?
Will I watch today in awe as a baton is passed from one generation to another?
Has this all been a dream?
Have I and thousands of others like me been living in a fantasy world for the last 16 months?
Today is the day that everything changes.
Today is the day that we start building a new and brighter future together!
Today is the day that we recognize that nothing will ever, ever be the same again and yet with that knowledge we walk gallantly into the future better prepared and significantly more uplifted than we have ever been in the past.
Today is not just Barack Obama’s day..today, is OUR day!!!
So, Clinton vows to fight on after losing North Carolina, barely winning Indiana with dwindling campaign finances and personal loans to her campaign, she’s out to prove that she’s no Eight Belles (I know, I know bad taste but I couldn’t resist..I mean Big Brown, Eight Belles..lol) well that’s her choice but if I were a member of Obama’s campaign or a ‘superdelegate’ this is what I would be saying/ singing right about now..
Obama pulled out Hillary’s chair..nice..I love a guy who does that..Has he ever done that before what a gentleman?
And of course he had to mention John Edwards..
He’s says he’s always been friends with Hillary and that they will remain friends..man with friends like that who needs enemies right?
