For America, for the world: Barack Obama.
As I am writing this, Texas is at the Caucus. But Barack Obama just minutes ago made his speech to his supporters in San Antonio, Texas. God, what a race it has been!
One expects him not to firing in all cylinders, but again, how can one not like him? The message of reconciliation was there again, congratulating Hillary on victories in Rhode Island and Ohio, and so was every other Obama’ esque element of speech- making. People who have been following him on the campaign trail would know what I am talking about. The inherent positivity and this incredible definition of America, something that is almost as powerful as it is lyrical.
“Can we send a message to all those weary travelers beyond our shores who long to be free from fear and want that the United States of America is, and always will be, ‘the last best, hope of Earth.”
Standing in Texas, that’s probably risky business.
"And if that child should ever get the chance to travel the world, and someone should ask her where she is from, we believe that she should always be able to hold her head high with pride in her voice when she answers “I am an American.”
“The world is watching what we do here. The world is paying attention to how we conduct ourselves. What will we they see? What will we tell them? What will we show them?”
Barack realizes that what happens at the Oval Office in Washington matters to geographies far across. The world is thankful for that, Barack! This is just emblematic of what makes me confident about Barack; a man really considerate of people in general, whether American or from anybody else. That is sanctity of life in it's truest essence.
This isn't just rhetoric. America, make him your President. The world would be thankful for it.
