Watch The Speech, Watch History

i was actually at a baseball game during the speech (don’t leave any crazy comments about my choices). i was greeted by an enthusiastic voicemail from my sister who has been following the campaign almost religiously. i read the speech transcript and was told that i must WATCH the speech. i did via a short clip on YouTube and listened again via a program on WBAI. for those of you who didn’t see it or want to view again, here’s barack obama’s acceptance speech via his campaign web site. feel free to post your thoughts as well (on his speech, not my attendance of a sporting event that evening). i’ll post my own two cents in the near future.

Obama-Edwards Ticket???

our next president and vp?

(this photo makes me feel as if i am looking at history in the making.)

while his endorsement isn’t surprising, how long it took is just a little bit to some folks. it seemed a lot of edwards supporters looked to obama as the next best alternative. does the endorsement carry the same weight it might have if it were given shortly after edwards bowed out or does timing even matter?

And You Thought MySpace Was Strictly For The Kiddies

tom hanks gave his endorsement of obama via a myspace posting. talk about rock the vote:

“History with a capital `H’ is going to be made this November, no matter who the president-elect is. I want Barack Obama to be president of this country, a country that once said people with his skin color were only three-fifths of a human being.”
