Starting at Quarterback: #44 Barack Obama

This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. This is our
time - to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our
kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the
American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth - that out of many, we are
one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and
doubt, and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless
creed that sums up the spirit of a people:

Yes We Can. Thank you, God bless you, and may God Bless the United
States of America

Cheers to hopefully "getting there".

Locally however, I was disappointed the educational levy was defeated again possibly bringing further cuts for the kids who were shuffled around after last year's levy narrowly lost out. Yet, Minnesotans willingly asked for a 25 year sales tax increase despite pleas that such increase was uneccessary to upkeep our wildlife and lakes.

Now comes the wait and see period like an expectant father snacking on Cinnamon flavored Teddy Grahams in the hospital waiting room that wussed out on watching the alien shoot out of their wives/girlfriend's ever expanding love tunnel. Will Americans buy into the above speech? Or will they start printing "Don't Blame Me, I Voted For McCain" bumper stickers before January 20th?
