A little late to blog about it, but… I went to my very very first political rally! I feel so adult now. My wife, Mary, and I went to Toledo before the primary to be a part of a crowd of 10,000 to hear Obama give a speech. It was a record-breaking crowd, and the energy was akin to some crazy rock show or sporting event. I just want to put here, that Obama is one heck of a speaker: he sais exactly what I want to hear, he puts hope back in me that I can believe in and participate (in a way that makes a difference) in America, and makes me all warm and fuzzy. The question is, as it is with all candidates who say, in exactly the right way, exactly the right things (George?): Is he just good at appearing the perfect candidate (George?), or will he walk the walk? Well, he’s all about Hope, so I will HOPE that he wins, and continue to HOPE that he really is all about what he says he is all about. You can choose to have faith. I’m just going to back my faith in Obama with my vote, if I get the chance to. I live in Michigan, and my vote does NOT count right now. Thank you, Lansing. Funny, the ONE time where I could express hope with, and honestly believe in my vote and its ability to actually make a difference…the one time where I want to vote because I would not be voting between the lesser of two evils, but for a candidate I really believe in…my government takes my vote away from me. Again, thank you Lansing, now all I really do have…is hope. Hope until the Democratic National Convention. Sigh.
