OBAMA DAY

Ladies & gentlemen, this is it. Election day is finally here, the day Obama might become president of the 2nd greatest country in the world. [Next to Kenya, of course.]

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?

Props 4 voting, first of all. MD really represented this time around. Plus, y'all got slots now, so gamble away!

Press conference? Yeah, saw another pic of Obama at Manassas tearing up. Was trying to attend but the sheer mass of humanity dissuaded me. Dude draws amazing numbers. Like moths to flame.

It's that smile and Kenyan charm. I still haven't gotten my sleep back from that night.

Tell me about it. I was so hype, for days!
BTW, how about logging on to change.gov and applying for a job with The Man?
