I was not knowledgeable enough at the time to decide for whom to vote for but a young attorney friend of mine (Jewish) told me to watch some clips of Obama's speeches that outlined what he stood for... I did; I chose to vote for him and I am most proud that I did! But, Obama's Democratic opponent was equally as articulate and eloquent and dignified!
While in office, he encountered organized GOP resistance like no other President in our history, with record setting numbers of filibusters and all manner of obstructions and dirty plots, ploys and tricks, yet he prevailed with dignity, respect, nobility and strength of character; he conducted himself with decorum and respect that brought America to the foreground on international issues, as a leader among nations. I AM proud I voted for him.
