Apparently women are really taken with Barack Obama:
College Park, Maryland – You can see it in their flushed-face smiles and hear it in their screams. They say the phenomenon is difficult to describe, but once they experience it they tell their friends, sisters, mothers and daughters, and they come back for more if they can.
“He’s very charismatic. It was a ‘you-had-to-be-there’ kind of experience,” said Lolita Breckenridge, 37, after hearing Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama address a packed rally at the University of Maryland on Monday.
A dedicated supporter, she brought two of her friends to hear the Illinois senator deliver one of his much-talked-about speeches.
“Not too much of the speech was new to me,” she admitted. “But hearing him live…” she trailed off, shaking her head and grinning.
I was going to refrain from commenting on this point, but, really, why would any parent name their daughter Lolita ?
But, wait, there’s more:
Ahead of Obama’s speech, hip-hop music blared across the sports arena and fans held up signs that read “Barack My World” and “Party Like a Barack Star”. Afterward, supporters were eager to talk about the experience.
For Karen Ruffin, 42, hearing him speak of his hope for the country was “inspiring, full of hope and phenomenal”.
She said she felt some pangs of regret for not supporting Clinton, who early on was tipped to gain the women’s vote.
“I was undecided in the beginning but after hearing a few speeches I gradually moved toward him,” Ruffin said.
Her friend Tyra Simpkins, 37, said she has always rooted for Obama.
This is how people are making their voting decisions in America today ? Do they even know what his proposals are ?
No wonder we’re so screwed up
