Okay, so I just got word in Italy, Obama has the democratic nomination! (I'm sure most of you already know that). Words can not even express how excited I am as I sit here in the computer lab at my school in Italy. If I was at home, I'd probably be celebrating right now, rather than cramming for finals, but maybe I'll do a little something in his honor this weekend :)

This is huge guys, HUGE. The first ever African American presidential nominee. But it's not just about race, Obama is a chance for America to make changes, in the environment, the economy, healthcare, he's a chance for us to turn our reputation around and finally progress in the world. He's a fresh face, a new perspective, and an influential leader that is ready to take on this role.
