(@10 PM – promoted by On The Bus)
On Tuesday, November 4, 2008, we can make history. Yes, we can. I am absolutely thrilled at the possibility before us. I cannot wait to walk across the road– maybe I’ll go in my pajamas– to the polling place at the Spencertown Fire Department and pull a lever for Barack Obama. I will then smile, and I will continue to smile. I’ll smile because I never thought this could happen. I never thought we’d actually get out of the Bush years alive. And I never thought a candidate, a black man no less, could unify the forces of light in America. And I think that by voting and getting out the vote in this election we can actually restore the rule of law, fairness, equality, justice, peace, and even prosperity in this country. Yes we can.
As I’ve said before, if Barack Obama’s presidency is one tenth as effective as his campaign, if his presidency is one tenth as creative as the musical explosion the campaign has brought about, we’re all, all of us, going to be just fine.
And so, with less than a week to go, let’s go back to this and let’s get it done:
Please vote. Please help to get out the vote. Please talk to your relatives, children, friends, colleagues, associates and urge them to vote. This election can make history and it can bring hope and it can change the course of the nation. Yes we can.
