Obama's Acceptance Speech

It was very powerful.

If only I could believe.

Hopefully he will show me. However:

He stated about his campaign: "It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give five dollars and ten dollars and twenty dollars to this cause."

I think it was a few more dollars than that.

Nice to see all the universities on the list.
