I feel for the people who really believe the world as we know it will end because Obama won the presidency. From day one of his candidacy, Barack Obama has had to overcome not only race issues, but to deal with a constant barrage of lies, rumors and innuendo.
Personally, I think Barack Obama will make a great president! He has a charisma that all leaders need in order to be effective. He is intelligent and wants to see social change.
It's time for Americans to change their way of thinking and move forward to the 21st Century. Race, Religion, and Gender should NOT be issues in our great melting pot of a country. The preamble of the U.S. Constitution says ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL (men meaning human beings in general, not "men" as a gender). We've overcome slavery. We've overcome the "glass ceiling". And our country is populated with people who subscribe to may different types of religious beliefs.
For those of you who didn't vote for Obama, please give him some time to show you that he CAN do the job. He WILL bring change – and GOOD change. He will make this country strong again and be a true leader for the USA!
