The Land of Fernieville

Finally the answer to the question: Hilary or Obama?

Posted in Opinion, Politics, POTUS 2008 by fernieville on June 3, 2008

Well, Obama did it. He made history… he wasn’t chosen as a token running mate of a 3rd party useless nomination… He’s the VOTED front runner to the OFFICE of the President of the United States. How cool is that?

You know what would be even more cool? That Hilary join him as VP…

And maybe…just maybe we can finally see the glass ceiling broken and I can truly tell my daughters: you can grow up and be president one day…or VP at least.

Can’t wait to be able to tell them without feeling like I’m lying…

A government BY the people for the people… perhaps finally the BY part will feel more inclusive.

You know what would have been weird though? Having had Bill as First Gentleman… could Bill really have stepped back and taken on the role of First Gentleman? I just couldn’t picture it. Or Hilary sitting at the same desk where a certain blue dress was soiled…you know that desk probably gives her a certain amount of angst.

Just think of that poster of presidents with their pics from your middle school classroom…picture after picture or white males with names like James, Gerald, William, Andrew, Martin, John, George…Barack?

So awesome!
