Samantha Power, Barack Obama's campaign, foreign policy | Salon News

 
Samantha Power, Barack Obama's campaign, foreign policy | Salon News

To be clear: I'm still on the fence, but as I gather information about the candidates, I continue to be impressed by the team Obama has brought together. Passionate, incredibly smart, with a good grasp of both the analytical and the heart and soul of the matter. They are multi-racial, women and men, community and ivy-league trained.

I understand the concerns about their youth, but how much longer will young leaders have to wait to put their future first ideas into action? My father was 26 when he won lawsuits against white segregationists in Mississippi. My mother was twenty-five when she published her first collection of poetry.

If not now, when?

We have relatively 8 months left before the elections, until then I will continue to stay left of the middle of the fence, lol. I just hope his team can hold it together, and that at some point, the both of them will come together as running mates.
