Today, Aug 26, 2008 marks the 88th anniversary of the day that the U.S. Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote.
After watching Michelle Obama speak last night I feel really proud to be a woman. She is an outstanding speaker. She is a compassionate, intelligent woman who has worked hard to accomplish so much in her life. And she puts family first. What a great American story she told about her life. She talked about American values that all of us, liberal, conservative or whatever, should be able to relate to. Her picture should be on the front page of every newspaper today. She is an inspiration to ALL women. And she's real. Unpatriotic? Elitist? I don't think so. In fact, hearing her speak last night made me feel a little more proud to be an American. And it gave me hope.
Go Obama! Let's take this country to where it should be.
