I was sitting right here at my computer… typing away.
I was writing the post for today (a different post than this one) and in the background I had the TV on waiting to hear the last two primary returns for the Democratic Presidential candidate when a voice interrupted the droning on of Senator McCain to say that Barack Obama was the presumptive candidate.
I picked up my phone and called Mr. Kaos to tell him… he was at his office finishing up some work… I wanted him to know… I wanted to be the one to tell him.
It wasn’t a surprise. I had just said to him Obama only needed 9 delegates to clinch the nomination.
We both knew it was coming.
But I cried.
Why did I cry? I was proud. I was breathing a sigh of relief.
I knew he would make it, we saw that coming… I didn’t realize I would have such an emotional reaction to it though.
I cried because I was thinking, hoping… Yes we can.
