My reasons for supporting Barack Obama are my two 8 year old boys. The next president is likely to leave office when they are 16. I want these years for them to see America at its best. I want them to see and experience leadership that rights wrongs. I want them to experience an optimistic America. I want them to participate in an optimistic America. I fully expect the next years to be difficult for this country. I believe that Barack Obama can lead us through this hardship.
