A Shot of Love!

Pure delight. I must say, hearing that Barack Obama won the Iowa caucus last night was like getting a pure shot of love straight into the mainline! It may be a temporary thing, (I hope not!), but what a sweet high. Obama's political vision was in part inspired by Harold Washington, Chicago's great reform Mayor. Obama came to Chicago to become a community organizer when Harold's insurgent campaign brought him to City Hall, and now, many years later, Obama is the inspirer. I love his youth, his optimism, I do think he's a true progressive, and wow, what a refreshing presence. Audacity of Hope, indeed!
