i am pretty conservative when it comes to my view on politics and the role i believe government should take in our lives.
truthfully, at times, i could be considered a borderline libertarian.
needless-to-say, i did not exercise my democratic right by marking a check next to the obama-biden ticket.
however, as a proud and thankful american, i will support my president. (even if i don’t agree with all of his policies)
truth be told i am not as interested in who obama appoints to his cabinet, the legislation he will sign into law, or the inspiration speeches he will give over his presidency.
no, i am more interested in his marriage to michelle.
obama showed african-americans that their vote counts and that they too, could hold the most powerful office in the greatest nation in the world. now, i hope obama can model to african-americans (and asian-americans, and caucasian-americans, and hispanic-americans, and all-americans) the importance of a healthy marriage and father-child relationship.
why do we need the obamas as a model for marriage? read this article in the atlanta-journal-constitution.
