Congratulations to Barack Obama for running things in Iowa. When all was said and done the Junior Senator from Illinois took home 39% of the democratic delegates. No small feat given the amount of time the Billary campaign machine was working. It was also no joke that a black male had more support from women, seniors and the typically white conservative farming state.

In his final speech before moving on to New Hampshire Obama was electric conjuring images of the late great JFK and MLK Jr. In a call for change and to take a stand against the status quo. He didn't support the war, hes intelligent and charismatic and I throw my support behind him 110%. Lets hope he continues his surge into New Hampshire and beyond. Congratulations to Senator Obama in becoming the first black caucus winner in America. We still have awhile to go as things are just getting started but what a great start it is.

"They said this day would never come. They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided, too disillusioned to ever come together. But on this January night at this defining moment in history, you have done what the cynics said we couldn't do."

Yes, this is some great stuff. We're finally living in 'interesting times' again rather than the last 8 years of 'depressing times.'

Obama has got that political charisma that we haven't seen since Bill Clinton first ran for president. It's great to see a fine public speaker with fine ideals.

I can't help but be very scared though and think that the republiclowns are banking on that part of America that's harsh and racist. I live in New York, and I'm surrounded by my fellow intelligent liberals - but that doesn't mean that I've forgotten that it's not like that all over. America is also the home to some very narrow minded folks - I just hope that they don't all come out of the woodwork to get in the way of what seems like some fantastic progress on our political and humanitarian horizon. Viva Obama (probably with an Edwards ticket).
