Run, Barack, Run!

Word has it Obama's on his way to New Hampshire.

I told Jay the other day that if he runs for President in 2008 I'd actually volunteer for his campaign. I'll make phone calls, stuff envelopes, deliver yard signs, whatever.

I said that I even consider--consider--putting a campaign sticker on my car.

Jay wants to know what's happened to the real Mary Beth. I say, how can you turn down this face?



Note: After looking over this post I realized that it sounds like I'm a fan of Obama because he's an attractive guy. In fact, I have been overwhelmingly impressed with everything he's had to say, from his World AIDS Day speech at Saddleback to his article in Sojourner's. He gets it and can articulate it in a way no one else can.

He gets it, he articulates it and he's foxy! Har har har!

Thanks Martha.

I was going to say, all that and he's an attractive guy.

(Then the "attractive" vote would be split between him and Indiana's favorite son.)

Yeah, Bayh's kind of a fox, too.

Jennifer said...

Honestly, I don't get the foxy part. Sorry girls. But I will definitely put my vote behind him if he runs. I'm impressed too.

His ears rule him out as "foxy" for me, but I would love to see him run...he reminds me of our new governor (YEAH), Deval Patrick, for whom I would do anything. Charismatic, energetic, idealistic...what more could you want? It seems as though there is a resurrection of sorts of politicians people like, trust and/or believe in...could it be a Camelot of our times once again?

Dh and I were talking about him the other day. We would absolutely without a doubt vote for him. Doesn't hurt that he's handsome either. ;-)

I'll bet Barak Obama never gets a bad haircut...

Mary Beth said...

Aw, Jenny. He also doesn't have the same gorgeous curls you have. I think he'd be jealous of your locks.
