He can put us back in a respectful global light as the US regains her standing around the world. We will proudly maintain that.
I learned long ago not to go by what someone says, but rather to know them by what they do and by the content of their character.
Barack Obama's life speaks volumes about his character and his ability to empathize with regular people. I know that his heart is in it and that when he says he'll fix health care and work on education, I know that he does it because it's the right thing to do. Not the right thing to say. We've seen him put his own needs aside to help those less fortunate. To me, that's what Democrats do. We put individuals first.
Barack Obama has raised the bar higher than it's ever been raised in my voting career, which goes back to my first vote for George S McGovern for President.
He's refused to play dirty politics-- even when he has dipped in the polls. That's a testament to character and it's rarely seen at this juncture of the presidential election process. It goes far beyond how most people would handle it and is one of the reasons we don't need any Joe 6-Pack as president.
I want someone better than myself at the White House, not my equal. Someone with impeccable character and morals. Besides, how well did that last Joe 6-Pack pRezident work out anyway?
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
