yeah Amanda basically. Whether it is because he is black or not…(probably for most people), he has stirred up something ridiculous in the country. Much of it is because he is African American, however I think a lot of it his not about race, but personality, speaking, and yes… the ability to unite people and bring hope. Obviously it hasn’t worked for everything, or about 46% of the nation, however he has worked up something that no one can relate to any other political member in the past. Again, he hasn’t done anything for me yet (except a few things I support… i.e. Gitmo), so I’m making the point that people aren’t praising him based on his policy/politics, but just what he has done from a non-political perspective.
