In sharp contrast to my upbringing, Sharon was raised in a family with strong Democratic political roots. Watching Barack Obama speak at the Democratic Convention, Sharon said "He is going to be the first black President of the United States." While I do not know much about Obama, I am impressed by what I have seen. He is running for the U.S. Senate in Illinois.
