Regular readers of Vision Thing know that I’m a big fan of Barak Obama.
For months now, people such as myself have been trying to stuff their enthusiasm for the young Senator for Illinois and get used to the coming of President Hillary.
Well it looks like when the Genie got out of the bottle, they could not stuff her back in again. Our man Barak has the mojo! The magic is alive.
Here is an excerpt from Stacy Parker Aab’s post in the Huffington Post:
After Oprah Winfrey’s weekend with Barack Obama, there’s much talk as to how much her support bolsters his cause. I don’t know the answer to this. I do know that when I saw the two of them in the same photograph, I saw two people who were powerful in the most magical way possible–the power of expansive possibility. Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama are two people who continue to surge forward and upward in their lives, breaking down walls–especially the psychological ones–shifting fixed understandings as they go.
Winfrey and Obama are brave people who risk capital on "impossible dreams," often proving that these dreams are only impossible for the timid. They walk into situations that are not guaranteed, that may be utterly foreign, or hostile, with only their faith, knowledge, and intuition to guide them. They risk, because risking is the only way to jump the tracks that others would otherwise keep them on. As Oprah pointed out in South Carolina, they don’t sit nicely and wait their turn. They know that those who wait often wait in vain.
With the primary soon almost upon us, people are tired of George Bush but they do not want to go back to the strained and strange relationships that existed in the Clinton Whitehouse. They want someone from a new generation to take us in a different direction..
