Obama in Austin


Barack Obama made a campaign stop in Austin, Friday Feb. 23. He met with thousands of supporters and would-be voters, discussing his platform for his run for President. Obama was charming, confident, and intelligent. He joked with the crowd that his wife would not believe that all these people were there for him. He talked about pulling troops out of Iraq, and the government's failures to help people more after Hurricane Katrina. It was an impressive speech at such an early point in the campaign. While I have not yet decided which Democratic I will favor, Senator Obama's visit to Austin has put him high on my list.

Thanks for your observation of Obama's Austin talk. He's high on my list, too, of leaders who can get our country back on track.
