I've been watching Obama since he made his keynote speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004. I was at work the night he made it and once I heard clips I wasn't happy until I was able to hear it in it's entirety.

I remember the enormous sense of hopelessness I felt after the last Election wondering how we were going to make it through the next 4 years. I also remember reflecting back on the Obama speech from time to time thinking "This is the kind of hope I would want to hear from the next President of the United States."

Rain: January 2005

Today I truly do feel hopeful.

You and me both, my friend.
The present state of our economy is worrisome. We surely need someone to reassure us that this too shall pass.
