Obama - Maybe I can hope now

Barack Obama won in Iowa last night.

I'm so relieved. I've wanted him to do well but a part of me has been hesitant to jump in with both feet. I did so with John Kerry in 2004. It took me a long time to recover from the hurt of his defeat (which may not have been so much a defeat as a theft).

Now here we go again. But the US needs a change so desperately. We need to restore the rule of law in our country. We need to restore our government, our diplomacy, our economy, our care for the people of the United States of America.

That's a tall order.

That's what is needed though and whoever ends up as the Democratic nominee, Obama, Edwards or Clinton, I will not be unhappy. The Democratic candidate field is so impressive this year. And I do want to give a nod to Senators Dodd and Biden who added to the depth of the field though they've now withdrawn from the race.

Well, it's onto New Hampshire and then the rest of the primaries. And may all of us in the US be the real winners this time.
