I've been reading Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father. All I can say is ... WOW.

Ordinarily I would be less than interested in reading any book written by a presidential candidate, but this is different. What a life! What an interesting, thoughtful man. He's contemplative. He has done personal work! And he might be our president??


I'm looking forward to voting FOR him. Most of the time in recent elections I've voted for someone because the other guy was so horrible, but this time, come November, I will cast a ballot for someone I actually would like to see living in the White House.

WOW. Wow. Oh yeah.

I haven't read his books yet, but this is the most ringing endorsement I've heard in a while. I guess I need to go get one! Thanks for the contagious enthusiasm!

Someday our children will look back and say,'this was our moment, this was our time'

The first candidate who has inspired me in many, many, many years...

may we not faulter or fear
may we not nit pick and fail
may we be the America of which we
have always dreamed


Love you so dearly!

I haven't yet read his book (never even thought to before now) but with your glowing endorsement-- I will seek it out--

He can certainly create a compelling vision. I hope he can create change in the land of gridlock!

I just hope he WINS! Maybe he can pull off some of the change he has talked about in his campaign. I would like to see the Presidency restored to the office of someone I can respect!
