It's Important

The Mothers Movement Online has officially endorsed a presidential candidate. Editor Judith Stadtman Tucker's thoughtful, important essay on who, and why, cemented my own leanings toward Obama. She's right. We're mothers; we have small children, to whom we are leaving this country one day. We need a change. And I agree with what Stadtman Tucker has to say about Obama's morals and a "caring society." Anyway, if you're interested, here's the link.

And even if you think celebrities having any sort of power over who one votes for is stupid, like I do, and tend to think things like this are a bit sentimental and sappy, you might still want to check out the "Yes We Can" video making its way all over the blogosphere right now. Because it IS moving. And inspiring. And if you set aside your normal cynicism, it might even make you feel hopeful that change in this country could actually happen.
