Yes we can

Greg sent me this link yesterday, and I can't stop watching the video—or getting chills down my spine and tears in my eyes every time I do. It's a lyrical/poetic interpretation of Barack Obama's New Hampshire speech, and it's absolutely beautiful and inspiring.

One of my favorite lines from the speech:

We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

Please watch the video if you have a minute, and if you're in one of the Super Duper states, don't forget to get out and vote tomorrow. We're going to our caucus and bringing Sidamo. How wonderful that his first participation in the American political process will be in support of a man who could very well be our nation's first African American president. He picked a good time to become an American.

Obama! (It's taken me a while, but I finally decided last Thursday after the last debate)
We're caucusing tomorrow as well but leaving Eliav at home- his bedtime wins out (and while historical, caucuses are actually pretty boring).

I posted it on my blog, too.
