I am an Obama devotee. So this post will probably only appeal to fellow Obama devotees.
Obama just spoke to a crowd of 200,000 in Berlin.
Can you imagine any candidate for any office from another country drawing 200,000 Americans to one of his or her speeches?
Reporters say his 27-minute speech at the gold-topped Victory Column was interrupted by applause at least 30 times, with occasional audience chants of “O-ba-MA!”
Billed as a speech about Transatlantic relations, it turned out to be a manifesto for the planet, with an appeal to “the burdens of global citizenship.” German authorities said the crowd was more than 200,000 — triple Obama's previous record of 70,000 in Portland, Ore.
Can you even imagine Obama as the American president? The possibilities are almost overwhelming.
I was thinking how crazygoodfun it will be to discuss politics with Brody. Then I wondered whether Brody could one day vote for Obama.
I did the math - he's 2, he can vote in 16 years, but at that point Obama will be term limited from running for president again. Alas. . . .
Then I had the most inspired thought.
What if in the future, Obama voted for Brody?
