Enough of Obama? January 19, 2009

Enough of Obama? Nope, not at all. Give me more baby!
It’s not about him, it’s about me, my family & their future. To be honest, I might even be this thrilled if McCain won….maybe. 🙂
I bought a Time magazine yesterday that is all Obama, all the time. I just thumbed through it, but did it at the same time while watching the HBO concert event that took place on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I choked up & thought…I am going to cry the next 48 hours! I felt like those housewives in the 60’s in their cute little aprons & done up hair as they secretly swooned over JFK and had a sense that their children’s future was going to better.
(Except, I was in pajamas and my done up hair was the same that I feel asleep in the night before). Welcome to the real working mom of the century!
Don’t know where I am going with this, except that the level of excitement & anticipation for the future finally feels right. I don’t have that sense of….ahhhh, really…that I have had for the last 8 years.
Good marketing? Yes. But when coupled with a great leader, a great message, great followers, and my gut feeling of “phew”…it is more than just marketing, it is just plain right.

    No other Inauguration has meant anything to me like this one. It’s not marketing, it’s Obama, the next President. And I can’t wait.

    It was amazing observing elementary students watch Obama’s oath today. The adults had tears in their eyes while the kids had wonder in theirs. Awesome either way!

    I need to clarify my title…Enough of Obama? NO WAY!
    Greg & I were talking last night about how I want the Obama art deco picture, a TShirt that says “01-20-09” & a nice print of his acceptance speech. Hook, line & sinker…I am thrilled & can’t get enough!
    I am proud again of our leadership, their roles, responsibilities & their hopeful toughness that will make us what we once were. In the words of Justin TImberlake yesterday, “America has swagger again! America is cool again!”

  4. I think you hit the nail on the head with this post. Your last line sums up my feelings exactly:

    “Good marketing? Yes. But when coupled with a great leader, a great message, great followers, and my gut feeling of “phew”…it is more than just marketing, it is just plain right.”

    There is something to be said for an individual who not only is skilled in getting his/her message out, but also truly believes and (so far) stands behind that message. Obama seems to be a rare find in the political world these days.
