President-elect Barack Obama
Sorry I've been MIA lately. The last several days, I had been volunteering in Bucks County (which went big for Obama by the way!) and just generally losing my mind. Between obsessing over the Phillies and Obama, I couldn't think of doing anything else. But I'm back, and proud to award today's Gold Star to President-elect Obama, who on January 20th will become the first black president of the United States, and the first black leader of any country in the Western World.
"It's been a long time coming. But tonight, because of what we did on this date, in this election, change has come to America."
Yes it has. Congratulations, Mr. President-elect. It has been an honor to vote and work for you. Yes we did.
