Thanks for checking out this week’s blog covering the 2008 DNC. As a co-founder of Hip Hop Empowers the Vote! we are committed to providing a real-talk townhall platform to voters on college campuses to share in a dialogue about the issues that matter today and will affect tomorrow. In all fairness, I am voting for BARACK OBAMA for PRESIDENT on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH and I want that to be known at the outset. I am not a democrat or republican. As a theocrat, I vote independently after prayerfully considering my choices. Ultimately, I vote for God. Last election, I voted for the current administration to finish what it started, more specifically since my daughter Taylor accompanied to the polls, we voted for Condolezza Rice (smile).
This week at the DNC has been filled with memories that will last a lifetime. One of the most engrossing moments was the appearance of Senator Ted Kennedy. The legacy-building elders statesmen has endorsed change as is his prescription for an ailing economy, for a failing global response to attacks on our nationhood and the inability of the current administration which makes the cry of every American for a “season of hope” a reality. I encourage you to watch the clips in their entirety to edify yourself on the DNC’s agenda for the 2008 contest of the most important higher office of the free world – President of these United States.

MY TWO CENTS: Within the confines of this historic speech citizen BO shows he knows fighting back verbalizing his platform very effectively, picking up his slingshot to pelt the Goliath-like maverick McCain with a retort that sent republicans scrambling for a response. After such a counterpunch to his strategic assaults against BO, the McCain response is to nominate a woman running mate in the hopes of scooping up disappointed Hillary Rodham-Clinton supporters that maybe straddling the fence. This is a crafty tactic…

MY TWO CENTS: The two-time vice president and former presidential candidate who is a champion for green causes used this opportunity to remind voters of how easily the opposing party can steal the thunder of what the public desires with crafty intent. His appearance was an added-value attraction that solidified the ecological, environmental platform with a credible source that has a proven heritage of presenting a global perspective with local relevance to Americans.

MY TWO CENTS: Wow!!! This is why he continues to be one of the most revered holders of the Oval Office for his ability to galvanize hearers with his oratory skills. He is a statesmen that is a dynamic presenter that truly knows how to connect with his audience.

MY TWO CENTS: As someone that has been very critical of the Clintons who formerly held top-of-mind status with me, I was overjoyed to see them move beyond their disappointment as unifiers that recognize the greatness of this candidacy and the importance of retaining the legacy that they have and continue to establish. Without a doubt this is one of the classiest concessions in and outside of politics. And Hillary always looks wonderful in those pants suits too (smile).

MY TWO CENTS: Okay, I cannot remain objective at all when it comes to this woman. She has poise, integrity, fortitude and is driven to achieve placing family first and foremost. My daughter loves the Obama girls and their mom and until recently I didn’t get it, but now that I do – I’m glad. She is a wonderful cheerleader for the future leader of a changed world.
NEXT WEEK…equal time will be given to the RNC in order to present a bi-partisan platform so that you, the voting public, can make an informed decision. I encourage each of you to prayerfully consider your choices, weigh the issues and allow your personal convictions to lead you to making the choice that gives voice to your issues and concerns.
