Yes We Can!

Last week, Barack Obama gave a speech in St. Paul announcing he had won the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Because it was a weeknight and I had to fight traffic and rush home to feed Harper G, I decided not to go. But my amazing husband made a speech about the historic magnitude of the occasion and won me over. He had been waiting to get in since 4:00 pm. I went.

It was everything I wanted it to be. The crowd was exuberant. Obama was inspiring. The cheers deafening. It felt like we were on the verge of real meaningful change. What a breath of fresh air for my generation.

I so wanted to be there. But since the present administration has not helped the economy and our gas prices, I decided not to make the 3 hour drive. I am sooo glad you went. What a great thing to brag to your posterity about.

Too bad I had a meeting or I would have gone with you. I could have been the only conservative there!
