President Elect Barack Obama
I was moved this evening listening to the inspiring speeches given by both Senator John McCain and President Elect Barack Obama. I was struck by the quality of the men.
They both hit the perfect chord, for me. And, in both cases, it was clearly heart felt. I was proud of them, and I was proud to be an American.
Somewhere buried in the Utah Amicus blog archives is a comment I left back in the midst of the Primaries, when the Democratic field was still fairly large. In that comment, I confessed that Barack Obama was my favorite of all the Democrats.
Since then, my admiration for the man has only increased. I love him. While I may not agree with him on every issue, I am convinced that he will be an outstanding president.
And, even though it was my honor to cast my vote for John McCain, I am proud that the American people voted for Barack Obama. God bless them for their wisdom!
