    started cryin' there for a second!

    Call me crazy.

    People just don't understand, or aren't aware of the man himself. It's been set up where if you admire the president too much the whole "messiah" thing is instantly smirked out by some idiot.

    But I think they do. The media makes you think the split in the country is "dead even", but he's up by 20 points in many cases.

    Even if votes don't count like many people think, I think the outcome of this election will really show the intelligence of the Nation, an historical marker, and will be in Obama's favor far, far greater than it appears on TV.

      I don't know why.

      My reaction was "Aw, that's so cute! Wait... what is this clear liquid leaking from my face? Am I CRYING?! I'm crying."

      That photo is amazing to me.

      so it's hard to believe that a powerful, ambitious man could be such a decent person.  That's my take on it, anyway.  I'm really glad to see this diary recommended here, because sometimes I think the cynics have taken over DK.

      Unfortunately, President Obama doesn't have time to read DK, so contact him here: The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500 (Postcards, not letters! Please give your email address.) -- 202-456-1111 -- FAX: 202-456-2461
