At his famous 2004 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, Barack Obama said, “The pundits, the pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats.”
The speech raised Obama’s national profile further and he was elected in a landslide to the Senate that year.
Just as in 2004, Obama’s words from that speech of “I believe that we have a righteous wind at our backs and that as we stand on the crossroads of history, we can make the right choices, and meet the challenges that face us” ring very true in 2020. Election day is tomorrow in the United States. You have a righteous wind at your back. Make the right choice and meet the challenge that faces you.
