Obama’s American Stories, American Solutions

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Dear Barack,

I had to work late this evening so I missed the televised broadcast of your ad, and watched it online. twice. All I can say is – I’m in awe. I’m amazed by your skill and grace, and for your ability to inspire belief in our potentials as Americans. This was a wonderful expression of who you are, and how you’ll govern as a leader. I certainly hope so.

I was particularly struck by one phrase where you say “it is that fundamental belief; I am my brother’s keeper, I am my sister’s keeper that makes this country work” that made me aware of two very big omissions tonight – Immigration and Marriage Equality – that would have sealed a perfect score.

I hope that in the remaining few days you take up these issues in the manner that you have with everything else you’ve addressed, boldly, well reasoned, and with dignity.

However this turns out next week. I want you to know that I admire and respect you as a great man.

P.S. I loved the touching moments about your mom.
