It's the last day of President's Obama's reelection campaign, and I am getting a little sentimental.

I have watched my daughter grow up during the Obama administration.

In 2008, she was an idealistic 2 year old, confident and excited about her distant cousin's campaign.

By 2009, at 3, she realized the challenges that Obama faced, and she had real concerns about the future.

Continued below the fold!

By 2012, she felt comfortable discussing political issues and talking about the upcoming election.  She had chosen stuffed animals for both Romney and Obama and provided her pick for Romney's VP choice.

Then last week, she made her first phonebanking call (she left a message).  

It has been so wonderful to watch my daughter grow and development alongside the presidency of Barack Obama.  President's Obama's election gave us all hope that whatever challenges we face, united and committed we can achieve great things!  While the President has faced enormous challenges over the past four years, he has accomplished so much, and can point to historic achievements that many "pundits" said could never be done. We remain proud Barack Obama supporters to this day!

I can't wait for the next four years of Barack Obama as President!  It should be awesome!
Make sure EVERYONE you know gets out and votes today!

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.
