A few weeks ago, I was out walking Ollie and looked up to see McCain on a TV playing inside the bar on my corner. My stomach tightened a little, and I felt tense and disappointed and yes, a little bit embarrassed that this man was seriously being considered to lead our country. Then it occurred to me that if I'd looked up and seen Obama on the TV, I would have been happy and proud. And I wondered: what it be like if that was how I felt every time I saw our president on TV? I'm really glad that I'm going to get to find out.
