“Call it a mid-life crisis. Call it too much technology at my disposal. Call it what you want, but I decided back in 2008 that I didn’t want to sit by the sidelines glued to CNN or Fox News waiting to see who gets elected. Back then, I was determined to try and make a difference. I decided to start Black Women For Obama, because I really feel strongly that Barack Obama is the leader we need to get the country moving in a better direction – he deserves four more years in office, and I’m dedicated to working tirelessly to see that he gets it!”
