How I learned to stop worrying, and love Barack

Barack Obama Hope Sticker

My last two post have been about how I strongly dislike the Republican ticket, and I've decided to stop focusing on them and start thinking about my candidate. Some of you may know that Obama was not my first choice. I was a Hillary supporter all the way. I thought she had the experience, the connections, and she was a women.
But, alas it was not to be. There I was with Barack Obama, and I had to get behind him. I'll admit, it took me awhile (possible till this post)to fully embrace him and realize that if we ever want the world to trust us again he has to be our next president. I even understand why Hillary can't be VP. We've had too many years of Bush's and Clinton's, if we don't get some fresh meat in office soon we'll collapse under the weight of 20 years of deals and infighting.
Obama, tells the world we want a fresh start, that the American dream is not just a slogan, and we will reclaim our reputation as a civilized people. Obama, tells us that he will create socialized health care, that he will stop the corporatization of America, and he will improve our economy, so that a middle class can reemerge.
I can only hope that he is elected. And if not, I'll start looking at property in Baja...oooh or Costa Rica.

Loved your title, even if it's a bit ominous. One point, Obama does not offer socialized healthcare (curses), he offers 'affordable healthcare' through the federal government. Health care for children will be mandatory.
