Obama has a "minor head cold."

What a time to get sick.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) sounds hoarse and said Tuesday he has a "minor head cold," just six days before the start of the Democratic convention and as he is poised to announce his running mate.

Obama told a pool reporter, "It's what happens when you hang around children."

He added that he usually gets "like one cold a year."

CHANGE OF WEATHER PROBLEM FROM HAWAII BACK TO THE
MAINLAND, HE'LL BE FINE BY SATURDAY!
BARACK OBAMA THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA!

Drink plenty of vitamin C, Barack, and you will be fine. Get to the polls and vote for Barack Obama in November! I am getting fired up now, the Democrats need to unite and we need to get a win in November!

McCain will be 72 years old on August 29th. We don't need 100 more years of war, 100 more years of economic recession, 100 more years of a health care and education crisis, and 100 more years of the same old Bush-like policies that have got our country in the mess that it is in now.

Future generations want to live in a world of peace and not fear, a world of happyness and not hate, and in a world that values people more then it values money. The Democrats value people, and the Republicans value money. The Democrats are the party of the people.

VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA AND LETS GET A DEMOCRAT WIN IN NOVEMBER!

AND LET THE CHOIR SAY AMEN!
DAN1967 GREAT JOB!
BARACK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT!
