We're just a few hours away from the start of an historic convention at which Senator Barack Obama, a bi-racial man with an interesting family history than expands the globe, will accept the nomination as the Democratic candidate for president of the United States of America.
The frequent tweets of Shawn Williams of Dallas South Blog adds to the excitement of the event. I hope I'm not expecting too much and will be disappointed. If Saturday's showing in Springfield, IL is any indication, the next four days will be electrical.
As much as some political pundits predict the closeness in the race between Obama and McCain, and that Obama is dropping in the polls, what I see on television and read on the internet say otherwise.
I am excited to hear what Mrs. Obama has to say as the headliner this evening as she and others attempt to make folks comfortable with Barack Obama as the leader of our country.
I'll drop a few lines on this blog, if I can, during lunch. Until then, stay alert and stay informed. Peace.
