I'm thrilled that my close friend Barack Obama is inspiring others
like he has inspired me.
I'm thrilled to have a president
- who leads with hope and unity, not fear and divisions,
- who improves on JFK's "ask not" line with "we invest in you, you invest in your country",
- who is as consistent with his positions and demeanor as he is with his beautiful website and branding.
- who finds the time to vote against giving the telecoms immunity for spying on us, unlike Senator Clinton.
I call him my close friend because you can't read the honest, heartfelt story of his pre-political life (Dreams From my Father
) without feeling like he's your brother, your friend.
