Thank you Tom for caring when you could sit back with your fame and fortune and take in the sun. Please keep using your celebrity to promote this fine young candidate. I'm 60, white and certain that the time is now to bring our country together and restore respect for this great country. Barack is right to enthuse that we can change the country and change the grand children need that and our nation deserves it.
