What had been speculated for quite some time has finally come to fruition. The Democratic candidate is Barrack Obama. Mr. Obama is our only hope for change. My biggest hope is that he chooses a running mate that will further re-unite this great country. He should pick someone who is, like himself, not from the good old boy network. He will need support from every ethnic group in the country. Hopefully he will not listen to those that think Hillary Clinton would be a good choice – all she would be is more of the same.
