Un negro en la Casa Blanca

Tengo que reconocerlo: no podía imaginar a un negro como presidente de los EEUU.
Sólo en algunas películas de ciencia ficción se daba esta circunstancia, que de por sí, ya era cómica.
La realidad ha superado a la ficción.
Ahora sólo falta un negro como lehendakari.
Todo llegará...

I think it is a wonderful day to see a man of mixed descent reach the White House. To me it shows the ultimate unity when the country can come together, put their racial differences aside, and vote for a man born of the union of a white woman and a black man when in years past both white and black people have discriminated against people of mixed descent. There is no greater symbol of unity that I can imagine. Congratulations to Obama and I pray that the country stands behind him all the way. He is a highly intelligent man with great conviction. May God Bless him and his family as they embark on this treacherous journey to save this country.

As a senior enlisted member of the United States Navy and a life long republican I am one of your more unlikely Obama supporters, however, to put it mildly, I have crossed party lines, nay, jumped party lines with arms wide open to embrace this man who can lead our country and the world into the future. Hail to the Chief! Change has come!

Brand Me Minutes:

My name is Melissa Dawn Johnson, entrepreneur, personal brand strategist and Author of the book, Brand Me. Make Your Mark: Turn Passion into Profit. I’m so thrilled to share a few thoughts on such a momentous occasion. Today, I want to offer you an insider’s perspective on three power moves that built the Barack Obama Brand and how these insights can help you turn your passion into profit NOW.

In these devastating economic times, I want to congratulate you on your BIG promotion. Yes, today you are appointed to CEO and Commander in Chief of Brand Me. You’ve held the position all along, but now is the time to take charge and run your life as a business.

On the heels of the unprecedented election, I wanted to give my professional point of view on three key power moves that built the $660 million dollar brand called Barack Obama. If he could build a brand to the highest office in the land, in a time of recession, so can you. I’ll cover these three points today, but will offer a free coaching session in much more detail on these points and more on www.brandmelive.com.

Here are three keys to victory:

Change the Game – Not only did Barack Obama launch his brand from the position of CHANGE, he embodied it. Everything from his approach, grassroots fire, igniting social networking tools and the youth vote to his name and ethnic heritage all embodied CHANGING the traditional game of politics. NOW is a moment where the unprecedented is ruling over tradition. How will you position yourself to change the game in your industry, your community, your family, your country? Change will cost you…but the benefits can be staggering if you know how to shift the game in your favor. Everyday, ask yourself: Is this move a game-changer? Am I able to inspire more to get behind my vision, can I show the benefits of playing on my team, can I create a competitive advantage, will I be empowering others to become their best? If not, go back to the drawing board.

Create a compelling story – Brands are all about great story telling. Nike has a story, America has a story…what is yours? Senator Barack Obama’s story was rooted in his personal and professional journey. How are you packaging your story into something that people will find compelling and inspiring? Most importantly, how are you encouraging other people to share your story in a digital world? I can’t tell you the number of email forwards I received from co-workers, family, friends and strangers with pictures, video clips, media headlines all telling some element of the Barack Obama story. You want to make your story as easy and engaging as a forward email. How are you helping those around you “forward” your story of perseverance, overcoming obstacles, unexpected success to others so they can give a voice and life to your brand?

Consistency clinches victory – Barack was able to consistently stay on message and deliver his brand. Even when he was tempted or distracted to shift his strategy, he stayed the course. In turbulent times, people are looking for an anchor. How are you able to be consistent in your delivery. Are you on time? Are you on target? Do you stand by your word? Do you deliver no matter what? Being dependable and being consistent will clinch the victory. Stay steady baby, that is what leaders do. (MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL INTERVIEW WITH CHRIS…)

Cometi um erro de digitação: O nome de Barack entrou com letra minúscula.

Madoca acha que sir Obama vai retirar todos os soldados americanos que se encontram no Iraque. Madoca sabe que Obama é sionista e pacifista e que os EUA irão readquirir o status perdido com os oito anos sob o comando de Bush.
Madoca é branca e ama os negros, amarelos e vermelhos porque todos nós fazemos parte da criação de Deus.

I felt very strong emotions the night of the election, which I had the fortune to spend at Grant Park in Chicago. A huge crowd gathered and saw history unfold...
