Today, I stood outside on this cool Fall day and listened to Barack Obama speak. I was so excited to walk up and get in line to secure my post, that I couldn’t even wait on my co-workers to join me. I impatiently went on without them. Senator Obama is as genuine in person as he is on television. The crowd of thousands listened quietly and intently as he shared his hope for this country. He has enough hope to pull us all on board and save us from this sinking ship.
