"Don't Tell Me Words Don't Matter!"

Hope is not passive, hope is not blind. Sens. Clinton, McCain and everyone who says Barack Obama is getting people's hopes up, giving people 'false hope,' sound less like the people who should lead this country and more like the bitter, angry townsfolk in movies like "Footloose" and "Pump Up the Volume," telling us what we can't do and can't hope for instead of helping to lead us to where we want to be. 

Barack Obama is finally answering the criticism and the fear-mongering like a fighter, like a Chicagoan, [the above quote is from a speech he gave in Wisconsin this past weekend], and it is enough to have me cheering for him.
