Who would have thought a few short weeks ago that the race for the White House would shape up to be a the race it has turned into?
Questions about Democrat unity…questions about the Republican’s/McCain’s ability to stop the Obama juggernaut and bring together his party existed…I don’t think anyone foresaw the last week…I didn’t.
What we have now is a race for the office of President which shows America for the most part still split down the middle…the word middle is important because this is where the race will be won…middle America.
Will McCain-Palin build momentum from the high-energy convention that no one expected? will Barack-Biden be able to recapture the spotlight?
Once we hit the debates, I will be interested to see where the polls are afterwards…if either candidate can’t move the numbers significantly in their direction, this one won’t be over until November…I believe that is how close it is.
And, finally, a word to Sen. Obama and his supporters. We’ll go at it — we’ll go at it over the next two months — you know that’s the nature of this business — and there are big differences between us. But you have my respect and my admiration.
Despite our differences, much more unites us than divides us. We are fellow Americans, and that’s an association that means more to me than any other.
We’re dedicated to the proposition that all people are created equal and endowed by our creator with inalienable rights. No country — no country ever had a greater cause than that. And I wouldn’t be an American worthy of the name if I didn’t honor Sen. Obama and his supporters for their achievement.
In reality…it is the truth…I know we read, hear and see a lot of hateful and ridiculous things from the right and the left…but the things that bind and unite us all are what makes the USA the incredible nation it is.
