Today, I am grateful for a few "magic" words.
It didn't take long for Barack Obama to win my vote. He caught my attention with a few "magic" words - actually one sentence from his book, The Audacity of Hope. As soon as the Colorado Springs campaign office opened, I signed up as a volunteer and precinct captain.
It took S a little longer to join me. And, he wasn't directly persuaded by Senator Obama. This afternoon, at a Colorado Springs rally, Federico Pena, former Denver mayor, former Clinton Administration Cabinet member and one of Senator Obama's national campaign managers, said the "magic" words that S needed to hear.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
