on Elena Kagan

Every so often, you experience a person who makes you question yourself, question your world, and question your role in it all.

To me, Barack Obama was that person.

(Is that person).

Two years ago, when he was campaigning in earnest, I fell in love with him, with his vision. I believed in him, hoped for him, and voted for him. I was in Grant Park when he was named the winner, the President-Elect.

(What a night).

It's been two years. Two long years, and for many people, two hard years.

I know that people are losing faith, and are afraid that he was all smoke and mirrors, campaigning to the vote. His approval numbers are down, his believers are getting quieter.

Not me. I believe that change is hard-fought. I believe that things are getting better, and will continue. I believe in the things that he has done in the past 16 months.

And I still believe in Barack Obama.

So if he believes in Elena Kagan? Well then I am in.

In case you were wondering.
