OPEN BLOG: 2012 Presidential race

In the infancy of this blog, I posted frequently about the developments of the 2008 Presidential Race. Alas not much coverage of the race as it pertains to the 6th Ward. Just more coverage derived more from national sources than local sources.

But that was an historical year as it turned out as in November that year, Americans elected our nations first Black President. How many of you in the audience was in Grant Park that night when he clinched the election for the White House?

I'm sure the elderly were excited as had been seen the day of the inauguration. How many of us could've imagined the day that a Black person would be elected President of the United States?

That election was very exciting because of its historical implications more than anything. The youth came out to support our current President and turnout certainly made the different in many of the battleground states that Obama won that year.

Now that he has been President for three years pluse, I'm curious how many of you out there view his performance so far. Would you vote for his re-election? If he won, what would you expect him to do in his second term? What would you expect him to do differently in his second term from his first term? Finally, are you still excited about the President the second time around?
