The Crucial "Laughing at the Pieces" Endorsement

The other night I watched the entirety of Barack Obama's "A More Perfect Union" speech. It's 38 minutes long, but I recommend making the time for it.

After watching this, I don't think there's anything in the world that would stop me from voting for a man of such intelligence, honesty and compassion. If we make him our president, I believe that not only will we become a better nation as a whole, but we just might become a better nation as individuals as well. I know that sounds pie-in-the-sky, but it's what I truly feel.

If you don't have the time for the whole speech, here's a highlight reel put together by TPM (10 mins.).

I am a jaded political veteran; and I feel the same way that you do.

Sadly my wife has a Hillary sign on our lawn...its a chick thing

Don said...

Yeah. What a salve it would be to have this guy be pres.

It's not entirely a chick thing, Andy -- in our household, Hillary gives Kathy the heebie-jeebies, and I was the one more inclined to vote for her. But man, would we all be better off with Obama.

Chiming in late to say the Hillary Love is not a chick thing, at least not with this chick. I haven't felt this much seething displeasure with a fellow Democrat since Zell Miller.
