My favorite politician is Barack Obama. I know what you’re thinking “typical kid who doesn’t know anything”. Actually I know why I like him and that all I need to know. It is not because he is black; it’s not that simple. I like him because he sets a standard for African Americans. He lets every black person know deep in their hearts “anything is possible”. Barack gives me the “nothing’s impossible” outlook on life. Now I look at everything as if it’s nothing, not because I’m so sure that I can do it but because I won’t give up easily or at all. As long as I want it enough I know that I can achieve any goal. Barack Obama gives me the “Pursuit of Happiness”.
