An Inspiration

Now that we have so much more time on our hands we have found ourselves closely watching the American Presidential primaries and have been very impressed with Senator Obama. We both find his speeches to be uplifting and very inspirational, he does indeed sound like a man interested in change. Whether or not he can actually accomplish that if he gets elected is another story. He definitely knows how to make a speech. Something that our politicians are sorely lacking.

He's already become very popular with the other members of the pack and doesn't appear to be scared of anything and is quite happy to play fight with his brothers.
