It will be because enough of us - as in other times and places - have tired of the current set of corrupt leaders who share little common ground with any of us. It will be because enough of us - joining many others around the world - can see Obama as a human being who is part of configuring a different kind of world. At least that's what we hope.

For the rest of the story:
(Obama comes from one of the most corrupt political areas of the country, Chicago IL, he's never exposed or stood up to anyone there but went with the flow of what he surely knew was a corrupt political circle of friends...on the other hand McCain/Pallin have fought corruption both in Washington DC and Pallin in her home state of AK; Obama is an arrogant elitist; McCain has served his country beyond belief and Pallin is a human being and she has a family made up of humans!!- I sure can relate to her; Obama on the other hand seems to have a wall around him, promises, promises, they are not actions!!....)
