See? Told ya:
That someone like Obama could be elected president of the United States?with its unrivaled power and prestige?has begun to restore the country?s and the world?s faith in America as the land of opportunity. Gone is the hunkered-down defensiveness of the past eight years, the lock-the-doors, draw-the-curtains, load-the-guns-to-keep-out-the-bad-guys mentality that turned so much of the world against us. In its place is the restoration of that classic American optimism, eyes lifted to the horizon, reaching out across continents and oceans, not in fear, but with faith that we can help build a better world.

If you’ve not heard the story behind that chant, you really should. It’s a classic. I don’t think I’ll tire easily of using this headline. Obama opens up a double digit lead in NH polling. I gave these numbers to some friends via email, but I’ll do so here publicly. Make yours in the comments if so inclined.
Everybody’s talking change. Funny that. Problem is Barack’s been saying it for […]Full Story... →
Though not as tuned in as normal, I did manage to watch some of the Iowa caucus stuff while flipping between it and the Kansas game (rock chalk in-laws wouldn’t let me live it down if I didn’t pull for their Jayhawks). All I can say is: Obama Bomaye!
More – and better – stuff has been written about why Obama is the clear choice for Dems this presidential cycle. I’d point you here as an example. I’ve been a fan of Obama since the 2004 speech. Since his ODP State Dinner move and the resulting up close […]Full Story... →
ODB is on the ground in Elyria while us others are watching on TV, but it’s pretty clear to me that with this speech in our state the President got his groove back.
In what can only be deemed a depressing week with the loss in Massachusetts, President Obama came out swinging and undeterred. Brushing off the Brown victory and quibbling in Washington over health care reform like he did his shoulders during the campaign.
The speech was consumed almost entirely of fighting words – in campaign style. The energy was palpable. The ad libs were smooth […]Full Story... →
I think it’s time for the online community to do so as well, including the Ohio blogosphere. Let’s show some leadership ourselves and form a tight circle around our nominee. Shall we?
Sen. Barack Obama’s 16-point lead over Clinton in the latest Gallup daily tracking poll of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters comes from even higher support among groups that have been supporting him throughout the primary race, and from newfound support among several groups that have backed Clinton
Obama’s strengths have all been increased while pulling closer in demographics typical of Clinton […]Full Story... →
Update: It looks like the margin will be around 17% or so. That’s unreal. Obama outperformed the polling by double digits! The biggest story, however, will surely be the continuing demographic shifts toward Obama and away from Hillary. We are now seeing pundits talking about what went wrong with the entire Clinton campaign. He’s a growth stock at this point. She’s declining. If these demographic trends continue in Ohio she’ll be in as much trouble here as it appears she is in Texas. I think Rich Cordray got on the right side of this thing. Smart man he.

Just to cap off a huge weekend for the Senator and future President, Obama wins a Grammy for the audio version of “Audacity of Hope”. Add that to his sweep yesterday and his stunning upset victory in Maine today and you don’t get much more momentum than that. Let’s hope Tuesday is more good news, too!
Obama Bomaye!Full Story... →
