We actually elected a person who decided to run his own campaign instead one who let others run it

The reason Obama's reign will be successful is pretty simple, he puts the right people in the right places. These 4 people ran a flawless campaign; Unlike Bush, I'm sure as President, Obama will put the most intelligent individuals in his cabinet, not the good ole' boys who have no business being in government.

But what is interesting is to see just how much strength Obama lent to his message, to what he wanted to say and how he wanted to say it. This wasn't just a candidate (like Bush) who just did what his advisors told him to do in a campaign to get elected. Instead, he clearly set forth his vision and what he wanted to do and then brought in the best and the brightest to get that message out. And when he wanted to do something specific (like on the Wright issue), there was no "discussion" - he had enough confidence and strength of purpose to set that course. Fascinating.

I still talk to people who say Obama is only qualified to run an organization, maybe the NAACP. He sure managed to out do HRC and John McCain and he hit the ground doing mach speed. I feel much better about our future than I ever have. I just wonder at what point the brain washed right will start to come around.

You would have to talk to Stephen Hawking about that one, because "that point" will be located beyond the event horizon. You are talking about some very stubborn folks who happily maintain their willful ignorance to keep away anything rational from penetrating their natural endowment of duh.

Like attracts like. Obama built a team that reflected his intelligence, temperment and wisdom. McCain's was a train wreck, much like McCain.

I love these people! God Bless America!

Bill Clinton came to the white house with a lot of personal baggage and a big ego. But I prospered under a Clinton presidency so I won't complain.

This is a person who is leagues above others. HE Will be Excellent!!!!!!

lol. Just goes to show you that even the experts can be wrong if they think they would have advised against Obama giving his race speech. That one will go down in history as one of the all time great speeches. The media ecstatically proclaiming Barack Obama's presidential win as a pivotal moment in race relations. But that speech defined the true moment.

Obama has given 5 historically great speeches. After the Philadelphia Race Speech, which made me weep, I predicted that a man capable of delivering one of the greatest speeches of American History would have to be elected President.

The other great speeches were the Iowa speech, the Nomination Acceptance Speech, the Election Victory Speech, and the 2004 convention speech.

I cannot wait to hear the Inauguration Speech. Ahhhhhh......

This article gives me even more confidence in the coming Obama administration. The way that he ran his campaign and the choices he made speak well of him. But I hope that the work that was done in building a campaign from the bottom -- in doing the hard work of community organizing -- will now in turn become a driving force for change. Franklin Roosevelt once told his supporters to make him do the right thing. We must be prepared to continue to create a political climate that can take this country in different directions.

THis proves what real leadership can accomplish. Obama set the tone for his campaign and everyone fell in with this....he created a culture of trust and fairness and respect. LOL.....let's contrast that to the McCaine campaign and the Bush Adminstration.

Obama's victory reminds me of a Tibetan Wind Horse- the horse represents the human will and effort and the wind is grace. When you authentically pursue your ambitions grace (wind) comes into play and orchestrates the details and helps carry you along: in this case his staff, the millions of volunteers, his family and friends are part of this. We marvel at it because it seems impossible and too good to be true.

But it's happenned and we can finally start to dig ourselves out of the Bush years.
