In response to posting Barack Obama’s “Yes We Can” video, my cousin Michael said this,

“It is a moving video, absolutely. Don’t let anyone tell you that supporting Obama is based merely on emotion or passion though (even though his followers are passionate) or that he doesn’t provide detail on his positions. He provides plenty of detail on his website, easy to find and check.”

His comment really made me think – and it occurred to me that it has been so long since we have had positive and inspired leadership in this country. Why not vote for a candidate because he inspires us? or because he instills within us a sense of hope and possibility?

In my mind – these are clear reasons why I want him to win. I believe an inspired America can progress in ways an un-inspired one cannot.
