Why I Like Barak Obama

I like Barak Obama, or Barry Obama as El Rushmo called him this morning, because he speaks well. But not only does he speak well. If you've ever been responsible for leading others in an endeavor or organization you'll recognize that the words used come from an inherent understanding and regular application of concepts such as Integrity, Accountability and Responsibility according to the John Maxwell School of Leadership Development. It is the best embracing a simple philosophy, "When you help other people get what they want, you get what you want." The implication being that Barak Obama will do the right thing when no one is looking. That reflects character. HC has simply yet to realize that there is no 'I' in team. BO is a team and consensus builder.

I've donated to his campaign a few times now - which I might add is the first time i have ever done so for any candidate ever. i also got the limited edition dvd of his speeches online at his store hehe, but I can't tell you anymore about it yet as i haven' received in the mail. I'll let you know how it is.

I have seen family members of mine come out who have never voted, who registered just to vote for him if he gets the dem. nomination. On the flip side, I think most of them will sit it out if HRC gets the nod.
