Editorial: Obama Has Ability To Connect With The American People

This story was written by Editorial Board, Northern Star
After months of campaigning, debating and punditry, well know who the next president will be one week from now.We believe the best person for that job is Barack Obama.Obama has proven throughout the campaign that he has the backbone to withstand political attacks, the intellect to top his opponents and the ability to connect with millions of people.Obama wisely chose Sen. Joe Biden, an experienced legislator with foreign policy knowledge, as his vice presidential running mate. This might not have been the most popular move for Obama to be elected, but it was a smart pick for the future of the country.Obama has worked with Republicans and has said he listens to those who disagree with him. We believe he will do this as president.Obamas ideas on health care, the economy and energy are the plans our country and our community need right now.
