President of an empire - to be continued

Finally my daughter takes me to a party of family! Lesbians and gay men! Sistahs & bros! And I’m happy, happy, happy!

We all talk about Obama, of course. What he’s done, hasn’t done, says he’s done, waiting for him to do, hoping he’ll do.

I talk about one step forward, two steps back. Malika reminds us all that we may have elected Obama but we did elect him president of an empire! This empire. Our empire.
