For me, Barack Obama’s election was a milestone of the most extraordinary kind. On the day he was elected I felt such hope in my heart. I thought we were seeing the beginning of a new era of equal opportunity across race and gender such as America had never known before.
The history of the kingdom of God is, directly, one of a reunion. The total divine milieu is formed by the incorporation of every elected spirit in Jesus Christ.
The majority of Americans, the ones who never elected George W. Bush, are not fooled by his weapons of mass distraction.
I voted for Obama and I was delighted that he’s been elected.
I was a victim of a stereotype. There were only two of us Negro kids in the whole class, and our English teacher was always stressing the importance of rhythm in poetry. Well, everybody knows – except us – that all Negroes have rhythms, so they elected me class poet.
Europe has shown how government can be organised in a network. Its institutions both compete and co-operate and include a directly elected parliament that does not appoint the executive, independent judiciaries and a complex set of relationships between the Commission, the Council of Ministers and the Parliament.
A politician should have three hats. One for throwing into the ring, one for talking through, and one for pulling rabbits out of if elected.
The story of how Chile, in the decades after its 1973 coup and death of democratically elected socialist president Salvador Allende, became one of the most neoliberal societies on the planet is well known.
You see, to me, it doesn’t really matter if an elected official has a D or an R behind her name, or his name. I honestly don’t give a damn about who belongs to either political party.
I supported Hillary Clinton. She would have made an excellent president. I didn’t think she could get elected. I thought it was too soon.
