I love Barack Obama.
No secret there… no one’s falling over in shock as they read this thinking, “Really? I would have pegged her a McCain chick…”
I love his stance on social issues, I respect the choices he has made in his life, I am inspired by his family- his beautiful and very gracious wife Michelle, as well as their two daughters.
I appreciate his character and strength.
Perhaps most of all, I love his sense of humor.
This was such an emotional campaign… and for all the times he gave us goosebumps or made us cry because of the weight of his words… he has made us laugh.
While certainly no “average” American, he does remember what it was like to be one… he doesn’t pretend to know what he’s doing every second of every day… nor does he try to trick us into thinking he has all the right answers all the time.
When he speaks of his family, I get the sense that he is not the almighty Commander in Chief in his household, but rather, just Dad and hubby.
I was watching some clips from Obama’s press conference yesterday, and once again our President Elect made me proud.
He also made me laugh.
Seems the Obama household faces a dilemma in getting that puppy that was promised to Sasha and Malia.
Due to allergies, it will be necessary to get a hypo-allergenic pooch…
… But if the decision were President Obama’s, he’d prefer “A mutt, just like me”.
Regular readers of mine know that I, too, am a mutt…
… And as such, couldn’t be happier, or more ready to serve my new President.
Here’s the clip:
