Thanks Chris, Obama is the only candidate that wants to talk to other countries that don't necessar share the us philosophy. From a pragmatic stand point what will you loose if you begin a dialog with your enemies. Someone has to be the first to reach outh their hand in order for a handshake to be made. Thanks for your support of Obama and more importantly your support of world peace.

when someone tell you that change can't happen lets say with one voice "yes we can".

Yes, we can.
