Holy Shirley Chisholm! A Change is A' Coming!

Holy Shirley Chisholm! A Change is a' Coming

"I am, was, and always will be a catalyst for change" -- Shirley Chisholm


Few would have predicted that 36 years after New York congresswoman, Shirley Chisholm's, historic bid for presidency in 1972, Barack Obama would emerge a prime contender for Chief Executive of the U.S. with his own hopeful message of change.

Obama's compelling sweep of four states this weekend is just another sign that Americans are not only ready for change but acting on it, and fighting back with a weapon so rarely used: the ballot.

Something is in the wind on these shores and we're all for pulling off our jackets and basking in it. The fervor and creativity of Obama supporters around the country just does our heart good. Check it out:

I got goosebumps when I heard that he swept all those states.

I was watching CNN last night and was shocked to hear Bill Mahr call Barack Obama the "Halle Berry of politics." I was taken aback but then thought about it and said, yeah, he is in a sense. But on the other hand, it was a slight jab and he'll probably have to eat his words when Barck becomes the next president.

Barack '08!

It's something else isn't it? I am very pleased to see the American public so engaged and smart about the issues and the platforms of all the candidates. It's good stuff.

I like Obama and I like the fact that his supporters reaallllly love him but frankly he doesn't have the experience to lead a nation. That's why I voted for Clinton because she has the experience necessary to get us through life after Bush. I say let's get a Clinton in office for another 4 years because it's a safe, sure bet for stability for our country!

Shirley Chisholm was fierce though, Obama inspires no doubt but Shirley was representing for black folks haaaaard.

Yep, Mr. Obama changed a lot of stuff. The U.S. has already started crumbling.
