Thoughts on the Candidacy of Barack Obama
Barack Obama’s candidacy represents the culmination of an American Dream and is a glimpse of the America to come. His ethnic background represents the diversity that has changed the face of America. It is this diversity that must be used to propel the country forward and bring those to the table that have too long been seen as adversaries.
I am proud of what he represents, for African Americans and For All Americans. He stands for all that is right with AMERICA. This is an opportunity for America to embrace its future with the hope, energy, intellect, promise and compassion necessary to engage those interested in improving the “human condition” here and abroad.
There is no other candidate for the Presidency that represents such a broad range of the American constituency and there is no other candidate that has been able to put their mind and heart on the pulse of the American people. In this place, in this time in America for the sake of our future, there is a need for change!
