The Bible says: Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
With the formation of an exploratory committee to test the waters for a possible presidential run, Sen. Barack Obama is hoping that polls evidencing Americans’ hunger for something not seen – “a different kind of politics” – will propel him into the White House.
In his message, Obama says he has “great faith and hope about the future – because I believe in you.”
I’m an agnostic. I believe Rev. Al Sharpton is spot-on about what’s at stake in the 2008 presidential election.
At the opening press conference of the 10th annual Rainbow Push Wall Street Project Economic Summit, Sharpton said:
The media want to talk about gender and race. We want to talk about agenda and the race. We are not into career development. We are into community development.
It’s an audacious leap of faith – and hope – that Obama will make his final decision based on what’s “right for the country.”
