Barack Obama and Joe Biden


**As busy as he is and still he writes to me...**

Ronda --
I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first. We just made history. And I don't want you to forget how we did it. You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change. I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign. We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next. But I want to be very clear about one thing... All of this happened because of you.
Thank you, Barack

He led such an AMAZING campaign, and this is more proof of that. He knows this wasn't about him...it was about ALL of us.

love the Barack email, make sure you save that email for a scrapbook to look at years from now!

After me and my boyfriend watched the announcement on TV that Obama was the winner, he proposed to me with a gorgeous diamond necklace from www.idonowidont.com so I excited because I have a new president and a new fiance!

Hey, I bought my book club book yesterday! I'm anxious to start reading it.

Do you think I'll have a chance to read while I supervise 100 kids at junior high band camp? lol

I hope you are right because as a New Yorker I remember the same celebrations for David dinkins...so I am hopeful , but cautiously.

Dawn said...

I'm a gracious loser and will fully support our new President!

Ronda's Rants said...

Thank you Dawn!

Wasn't that in 1993? I am sure you are not implying all Black men are the same or Do you mean just all Democrats?
Also, I think cab drivers are the most interesting people! But...I hope you do give him a chance...I think he has the right stuff!!

Marcie said...

Thank you for visiting and your kind words! Obama is a true phenomenon and what he has achieved is resonating beyond the US. He is a role model for many all over the world. He has opened the door in more ways than we can immediately fathom....

Careysue- You just inspire to continue writing just when I think I am done.
