my first election was clinton's second and although i adored him still, he had already disappointed me. i was no longer the 17 year old who stood in a crowd, on a freezing day, to shake his hand and had stuffed envelopes for his campaign in 1992.
when i watched barack obama give the keynote address at the 2004 democratic national convention in awe. i thought he was going to make a great president someday. and here we are...
someone i believed in won. someone who i actually think can affect change won. someone, a real person, not just a character on the west wing, made me believe in this country again.
yes we did, mr. president. and yes we will.
