When I watched this tonight, I remember a specific time and place I was at during the fight of the primaries.

I remember coming to this site, reporting every time I went to Iowa and told everyone here, "Obama is the most organized, Iowans are anti-war, and that the MSM was not getting what was happening on the ground."

And I was right.


This reminds many of us about the unpredictable, unimaginable, "it can not be done", campaign of Barack Obama.

This is memory lane folks, take it and savor it.  It won't be like this for long.  Barack Obama has a very hard task ahead, worse than many presidents since FDR.

We have to stand by him, criticize him when his decisions are wrong, stand up when he is right, but always remind him where he came from.

He came from, us.  If it was not for us, Barack Obama would not be here today.

He is the change, and we put him there to MAKE THE CHANGE WE NEED.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
