interview with joan baez
i just read an interview on cnn.com with joan baez. it was kind of weird and awesome at the same time. i guess like her. ha! anyway, this part really stood out to me: I've never seen this country this politically charged. I realized something this morning. I was watching Obama on TV and I thought, "I really love this guy." I love what he's capable of, I love that he's genuine. He's a statesman, and he's brilliant. People say, "Do you think he can change America?" He already has. and she's so right. he has already changed america. look at all the people who went out and voted in this election. it's a much higher number than it was 4 years ago and i believe that that is a direct result of barack obama running for president. you can read the rest of the interview here. also, obama won north carolina. that's the 9th state that bush won in 2004 that obama won this time. that's insane and incredible!!
