Obama can't stop, won't stop...


Okay, so I am writing about the Democratic Primary election again, but really, can you blame me?!

The entire country has been mesmerized by this historic election series. It's better than reality TV, the writer's strike and Britney Spears' breakdown combined! Unlike all of those events that consume the media, the outcome of the next presidential election will directly impact our lives. And that is something to get excited about.

Barack Obama has impressed me, this country and himself. He has won in every region of this country. This past Tuesday, Obama won Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC--a sweep of eight straight primary victories. His hope, our hope is not false. It is not a fairy tale. It is real.

Obama can't stop. He won't stop until he claims the White House. As he said in a speech this week, "We won the state of Maryland. We won the Commonwealth of Virginia and, though we won in Washington DC, this movement will not stop until there is change in Washington DC. Tonight we are on our way."

I will not predict a winner yet. Betting on politics is a foolish person's game. However, this country has demonstrated that it is ready for change. Indeed, Obama's victories in these primary elections have already begun to transform us. And I am excited!
