After 21 months on the campaign trail (longest in history), Barack Obama still inspires.  Please listen to Sen. Obama’s closing arguments (full speech).

You know, when long-time conservative National Review contributer Christopher Buckley and Google CEO Eric Schmidt, a long-time high-profile fundraiser for the Democratic party, decided to publicly back Barack Obama, no one asked, “Was it race or merit?”  That’s the same question being asked of the far more moderate and respected former Secretary of State Colin Powell.  

Perhaps it goes deeper than race, The Media, to an issue of trust.  Afterall, Colin Powell was still workingas SoS during the early days of the Bush Administration and supported the president (though clearly skeptical), during Bush’s bid for war.  Powell was also keenly aware of Sen. Barack Obama’s firm stand against the war. 

It’s too late to alter our course in the east, but it’s not to late to alter the course that lay ahead.  That’s why it’s time for a candidate like Barack Obama.  And that’s why we’re seeing support across the board from people of all colors.  It’s time for this country to mend it’s wounds and come together; Democrat or Republican, Green Party or Libertarian, black or white, girl or boy.

Recently at a McCain rally, a woman said she didn’t trust Obama because “He’s an Arab.”

McCain was quick to address the crowd, telling them amid boos that Obama was a “decent family man and not an Arab.”  

Firstly, I’ve been to two Obama rallies and whenever McCain is brought up, it’s usually in regards to a policy and the crowd listens and maybe cheers Obama and more importantly whenever Obama states boldy that we need to come together as a nation – Democrats AND Republicans – he is cheered loudly.  Nobody yells, “Kill him” or “terrorist” or “traitor” or “off with his head.”  I can’t even believe McCain tried to suggest this was normal.  I’m also irritated that McCain, through his disjoined logic, apparently believes you can’t be both Arab and a good family man. 

We need a president who can UNITE the parties, not further divide them.  And this is one more reason I support Sen. Barack Obama.

Dr. Horrible

John recommended Dr. Horrible, a musical comedic interpretation of a world consumed by capitalism featuring good and evil; where the good guy is the bad guy and the bad guy, Dr. Horrible, is the good guy (sort of).
