CNN rocks the election

voteCNN and I came of age at the same time. I watched as Bernard Shaw report on the Iraq invading Kuwait from beneath a desk inside the war and as Anderson Cooper took on Katrina. As a journalist, CNN is still my go-to place for news, and on this historic election night, even more so. If you want up-to-the-minute coverage, without all the running commentary, go to


Good Luck, Barack! November 4, 2008

Ever since I saw Barack Obama’s powerful and magnetic speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention, I said to myself, “That man needs to be President.” He inspired me to hope for the first time in a long time that things could be different—that we could live in a better world, where our economy and international reputation weren’t both in the same simultaneous freefall. This campaign has been harrowing at best, and I can’t recall one that’s ever been so ugly in recent years, but the amazing thing is that Barack has not only survived, but thrived, in this pre-election tumult. I can only imagine that he has inspired others in the same way that he has inspired me. I feel like I’ve been with him since that beginning of his breaking onto the national stage 4 years ago, and every step of the way has been perfectly and brilliantly executed. It’s thrilling to see someone my age (just a month apart!), who is so politically talented, have a run at the White House. I just want to say, “Good luck, Barack.”
