I'm blessed to witness this extraordinary race, no doubt. No matter the outcome, it goes to show that black people can, and do, become great. Granted, he's half-white, but you know what they say - if you ain't white.... you know the rest.
Dude is freakin' amazing. He came on a local radio station yesterday, WKYS, at 8.10am. He had only heard about his grandma's passing 5 minutes prior, but he came on with his gameface [well, gamevoice] on, and even cracked a joke. The only evidence of his emotion was that he sounded uncharacteristically weary, and before he started talking someone in the background asked: You OK? To which he responded in the affirmative and went on the air. If that isn't strength I don't know what is.
Colin Powell said it like it is - Barack really is a transformational figure. I hope he wins.
And how about that Lewis Hamilton? I'm truly, truly impressed - the youngest Formula 1 champ, ever, at 23. How unbelievably cool is that?

OMG, Obama really did it! I'm blown away, as I'm sure millions are.
President Obama - has a nice ring to it, don't you think?
