Did you listen to Barack Obama’s South Carolina Victory Speech?

Jan 26, 2008 Published under Global, Leadership, United States

Barack Obama’s South Carolina Victory speech is one of the most inspirational and powerful – and sincere – I have heard in a long time.  It is also the right message that our nation and our world desperately need. 

After months of researching all candidates, and after seeing the way they have conducted their campaigns, I have decided to help the Obama campaign.

On the Republican side, McCain’s principled public service is also admirable and worthy of support.

And on the Democratic side, I thought hard about Hilary’s experience, and the accomplishments of the Clintons during their administration, which I don’t think you can dismiss.  After the dust settles, Senator Clinton would also work hard to bring America back to a position of positive global leadership.  But the way the Clinton team handled the fight against Obama is a warning about what we’d encounter in a needless partisan "Clinton vs. Republicans" tenure, one which would not serve us well.  Obama, by contrast, can possibly unite the nation.

Some of Obama’s positions concern me, and it is possible he will make some mistakes early in his Administration.  But he more than makes up for it with his character, intellect, and his sincerity about healing our nation with a message of unity that will be heard across (and also impact) the world.  The greatness that could come from his Administration is exactly what we need.

Odds today are that Senator Clinton’s strong network will beat him.  But that is more reason to lend him a hand if his message appeals to you.
