Obama Wins Iowa

January 3, 2008 - write the date down, etch it to memory for it is important. This is the day Barack Obama made history. Never before has an African American Presidential candidate taken Iowa. This is a major turning point for the nation. We are saying to the Bush Administration "WE ARE TIRED OF YOUR ISH!"

As of now, Hillary Clinton is in third place behind John Edwards.

(Here is where I am going to get on a soapbox and preach) If you have not been keeping up with the election, please do. This is a very important election. We need someone in the White House that will be for the people and not corporate America.

Please, please if you are not a registered voter, GET REGISTERED! Voting is not a right, it is a privilege!! Too many people have bleed and died so we can vote.

Congrats to Obama, his family, friends and supporters.

Yes, I am so happy. He just won the Iowa caucus and already I feel like a freed slave.

I just hope that he will garner more black votes. I hope we as a community will unite, get registered, and vote. This election is very important. It is the first presidential election after the Voting Act was extended, so we need to send a message to Washington letting them know we will not go quietly into the night and our ancestors did not die in vain.
