Then Senator Obama announcing his candidacy for president in Springfield, IL, on February 2, 2007.
I keep thinking back to the last campaign. To how far we’ve come as a country. To the historic victory of Barack Obama for president. In between the polling data and the mini-freak outs I keep having over Ohio I remember the Yes We Cans. The hope.
It bothers me that in just a few short days it could all be over. We could be staring at the face of President Elect Mitt Romney. It doesn’t make sense that this man, who inspired us all in such a profound way, could somehow be a one term president.
Get it together, America. You will never find a perfect candidate for president but it’s rare to have the opportunity to re-elect someone so genuine. Do the right thing.
