US Politics

Keeping the Eyes on the Prize!

A word of caution! Leading is not winning. We need to focus on
running as hard as we can all the way to the line. Yes we can!

Fellow Obama Supporters!

May I suggest that we let the opposition waste their time worrying about the statistics.
On this side of the fence, the key Obama management people watch these numbers and when necessary take appropriate action. I am sure everyone wlll agree, they are doing an amazing job!

As the Obama troops on the ground we have an different, but equally important role.
However a word of caution at this stage. In our excitement we sometimes get too
concerned with the idea of, ‘whose winning?.

When a campaign hits the front in any contest we often forget we are in a race which is still in progress. Who is leading at a particular stage, is not the point. Leading is not winning. What we need to do in the race, is to focus on running as hard as we can all the way to the line. Yes we can! When we pass the post we won’t need to ask the question.

The first goal: The Nomination.         

Winning the Nomination.

Nothing else should occupy our time, resources or energy. Enjoy the wins along the way
by all means, but they in themselves gaurantee nothing but disappointment if they do
not deliver the prize we seek. The Nomination.

The final goal: The Presidency.

Winning the Presidency:

This contest will require the same level of discipline, drive, and enthusiasm to climb that
final mountain. Yes we can! However this time millions more Obama “yes we canners”
will be standing shoulder to shoulder with Barack, compared to when he first stood alone
in Springfield to utter those now famous words. We want change! And so began his journey
to realise America’s dreams!

Just something to consider.
