Obama Will Win Florida

Florida:
The most glittering prize,
the nation’s biggest swing state.

The Republican candidates’
conservative positions
are boosting Obama’s electability.

Independents, Blacks,
non-Cuban Hispanics.
Jews, twenty-somethings,
seniors, nature lovers,
aerospace scientists,
college students, military families—
The Florida constituencies
being wooed by Obama. 

The most critical mission—
the economy.
Everything else—
secondary.

Economic trends,
voter perceptions—
the economy
is getting better. 

The direction
 of the election—
Obama’s second term.

Today’s found poetry gives me another chance to advocate for Obama.  None of the current Republican candidates have the experience, character, or temperament to hold the office of President of the United States.
