Barack Obama to me represents a massive step forward for the United States. He embodies their nations new ability to accept change and make up for the past. Essentially, America overwhelming voting for a Black president means that it is moving away from what it knows, the traditional candidates and choosing equality and something different.
Obama is the key factor in helping America overcome racism. I think he is exactly the man to unite the country and I respect him even more for deciding to pull troops out of Iraq.Â
