Technology will play a large role in the 2008 Presidential election and at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Across the country and the world people will be able to view the convention in real time. Reporters will be able to post stories immediately for all to read. Using satellite radio or the Internet, radio personalities will be able to describe all that is happening at the convention. Without technology I would not have my new BFF (Best Friend Forever), Barack Obama. Personal emails addressed to me have shared his decision to ask Joseph Biden to be his running mate. We are so close that he signs his messages using only his first name. Barack has even asked that I send a personal message to ‘Joe’ to let him know that I’m glad he’s part of the team. Barack, thank you also for the opportunity to get a first edition car magnet, but since I can’t drive yet, and I don’t have a credit card, I will have to check with my parents. This relationship has moved rather fast, my parents have always taught me that I am only to refer to an adult by their last name unless told otherwise. So Senator Obama since you have sighed your emails with ‘Barack’ I am assuming that we are both on a first name basis even though we have never met. Given our new relationship I would like to address a letter to you.Dear Barack,*If elected president, what do you want your greatest legacy to be after you leave the office?*There is no doubt that there is a healthcare crisis. The number of families without health insurance grows daily, however families with healthcare insurance are facing higher deductibles, larger premiums, and less coverage. How do you plan to address these problems?*The U.S. is struggling with illegal immigration. Having traveled to Juarez, Mexico on multiple occasions and seen poverty first hand, it seems to me that the illegal Mexican immigrants here are the lucky ones. How do you plan to address illegal immigration while also addressing the poverty of third world countries?Barack, thank you for your help with these questions.Your new BFF,GabiPS – I requested a credential to attend your acceptance speech at INVESCO Field, but never heard back. Can you please check on that for me?
