HISTORY unfolding right before our eyes: The AUDACITY of OBAMA


As John McCain lamely tries to distance himself
from the policies of his Republican lame duck President,

the Democrats once again prove to be the real party of change,
audaciously selecting the first African-American in history
to be their nominee for the Presidency of the United States.

"YES, WE CAN!!!"

the best political speaker since Tony Blair and Ninoy Aquino,
is truly is the most inspiring politican of this generation.

His campaign bears close watching,
and his policies regarding Iraq, International Trade, Immigration
and Healthcare (lift Retrogression for Filipino Nurses!!!)

should he take his oath of office in Washington next January,
will definitely affect the Philippines over the next decade.

"We always knew that hope is not blind optimism.

It's not ignoring the enormity of the task ahead
or the roadblocks that stand in our path.
It's not sitting on the sidelines
or shirking from a fight.

Hope is that thing inside us that insists,
despite all evidence to the contrary,
that something better awaits us

if we have the courage to reach for it,
and to work for it, and to fight for it."

I pray that Ping, Loren, Mar, Manny, and Dick
don't translate "the audacity of hope" in 2010 to
"Ang Kakapalan ng Pag-Asa"....
