Tuesday January 20, 2009 Barack Obama will be sworn in as our 44th president and I hope that’s what it will be…a New Day. I’ve been into politics for several years, and pretty heavily in the last couple of years. I’ve seen some good politicians and I’ve seen some bad ones (George Bush)…Ahem!! I’ve also seen some good ones do some bad things (Bill Clinton) Ahem!! This new guy Barack Obama seems to be different. He’s young, good looking, in great shape, and is a master of words. Those words make me feel better, bigger, and stronger. They make me feel like I can do more. His words make me feel hopeful. I don’t know him but I feel like if I were talking to him, he’d actually care about what I had to say.
The world is very different than just seven or eight months ago. The economy has slowed to a crawl…and backwards at that. Israel and Palestine and killing each other…again. Terror attacks in India, a senate seat for sale (allegedly), on OJ is in jail (I’m not sure where that came from). There are a lot of gigantic problems on the plate for our new president. I happen to think that we’re all here for something great. I think Obama was destined to become president. I think his temperament, his style, his inclusiveness and his grand rhetoric make him exactly the right person at the right time. I’m certain he understands the gravity of the problems we face, and I think he’s up to the challenge.
Now, I’m under no delusion that he is our saviour. I’m sure there will be plenty of missteps. But January 20th will be a new day. I think Obama will change the world, and I think he will do it by inspiring us to change our own world. I think things are about to get really interesting…what do you think?
Stay Fly and Fly High

I want to change the world, and I know that I can with a little help from my friends.
