It's interesting that so many places and people call President-Elect Obama their own. Hawaii certainly does because Obama grew up and went to school right here on Oahu. Illinois does because he was our senator there. Indonesia does because he went to school there for a few years. Kenya does because his father was from that country and there is still family in his village. African-Americans do because he is half African American. White Americans do because he is half white. People in Kansas do even though the state went red. Minorities (Can we include Asians, as well? They seem to always forget about us.) do because he represents them, too. Young people do because he is younger than most who have run for that office. The world does because they related so much to the message of hope he offered.
I LOVE it!
