Obama wins



When Barack Obama emerged as a possible contender for the Democratic nomination last year I have to admit that I thought he little or no chance of convincing his own party to back his run for the presidency let alone actually persuade a wider elctorate to vote for him.

When I saw his acceptence speech I was reminded of John F.Kennedy's inaugural address in 1961.

it strikes me as very interesting...

i have read posts all over the internet where people say that obama reminds them of this or that person... each someone that had deeply touched them in their lives.

obama has had a very personal effect on masses of people.

wow.

I agree absolutely. When I heard his victory speech I was deeply moved.
