246 - USA!! USA!!|
I'm watching Obama's acceptance speech on CNN. While I am not an American, and I did not and could not cast a vote, I still have been heavily invested in this election. Its historic for two reasons, one because of Obama's skin colour. I honestly don't think that became the issue that people were thinking it would. This is historic because for the first time in a long time, we have had the opportunity to choose. To choose between the grudging, awful politics of fear, or finally trust a person to believe in idealism, to believe in their optimism, their hope. For too long we have accepted the world as a dreary place and have drudged along accordingly. John Fitzgerald Kennedy is very famous for quoting George Bernard Shaw's line, Some men see things as they are and say, "Why?" I dream of things that never were and say, "Why not?" Finally, we have a leader who embodies that. Obama will change the world. And we will be around to witness that.
I love Bill Richardson. I believe he will be the best choice for Obama's Secretary of State. Richardson is an amazing statesmen. His record speaks for itself, and I believe it would send a clear message to the world about America. That they are ready to see true ability and potential, no matter who the person is.
If I can't see Palin crying, I would settle for a clip of McCain tripping up. You have no idea how excited I am abut the prospect of never seeing their horrible faces ever again. I am truly sick to the pit of my stomach with their antiquated, bigoted and condescending attitudes. Good riddance. McCain deserved to lose for his truly disgusting campaign.
I can't wait to see what the future holds.
