What happens when the little guy gets a voice in politics. Wow. For the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country! 😉
“When Christen Braun decided it was time to learn more about the presidential candidates, the 28-year-old high school teacher from suburban Pittsburgh turned to Google — right where Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign was waiting for her.
Her search triggered an ad for Obama’s Web site, which prompted Braun, a Republican, to sign up for the Democratic senator’s e-mail list — and then to make her first political contribution, for $25.”

How Obama’s campaign treats us like adults and wins us over, unlike some we could mention! 😉
