Proud of my President

Amongst the crowd of listeners in Florida today, while Obama was selling the stimulus plan, was a dignified but troubled black woman who took the microphone to tell him through her tears, how much she needs the help he's been describing. In response, his voice cracked or wavered as he told her he wanted to help.

he promised to have his staff talk with her after the town hall meeting was over but reminded her and all of us that there are so many others just like her who need that kind of help.

He, then, walked over to her and kissed her on the cheek.

So that's the kind of president I want! And I feel damn lucky to have him.

He has said that he wakes up in the morning thinking about the help people like her need. I believe him!
