Obama Video of the Day – 10/15/2007

In today’s Obama Video of the Day, Alice Walker, the prolific author of “The Color Purple” and “Possessing the Secret of Joy”  tells why she endorses Senator Barack Obama: 

So much of what Ms. Walker has to say here echoes how the many men and women who are volunteering tirelessly to get the word out about Senator Obama feel about the candidate. His quiet strength, his unique background, and his ability to bring people together are unprecedented in National politics, and is exactly what this country needs. The most important point Ms. Walker makes in the video is about the perceived “lack of experience” Senator Obama’s detractors love to harp on – she remarks that his inexperience with politics as we know them today is the very thing that makes him the only real choice as teh next President of the United States.

One only has to see Senator Obama speak to know that he is 100% genuine. One only has to read “The Audacity of Hope”, or “Dreams of my Father” to know that he is a brilliant thinker and communicator. But it takes a brave and enlightened soul to know that there is a better way to renew this country’s spirit, and that the politics of yesterday are not what we need and no longer what we want. The truly enlightened know that the politicians of yesterday are directly responsible for the divisive, immobilized, confused state that our nation currenty finds itself in. I’m enlightened. Alice Walker is enlightened. Many, many other Americans are similarly enlightened, and that’s why I believe that when Election Day comes for those important key primary states, the voices of the enlightened will be heard, and Senator Obama will prove to be a force to be reckoned with.
