  1. I too was raised partly by my maternal grandmother, who died at the age of 90 when I was 19. She was the most important person, hands down, in my life. Anything that is good about me, I received directly from her. So when Sen. Obama talks about his grandmother, the words really hit home for me.

    Because she was in the last stages of cancer, his grandma might not have been aware, had she lived until tomorrow, of her grandson’s momentous achievement. Perhaps she just knew in her heart that he was going to be elected. Many people who’ve known Obama a long time have said they always knew. (Yeah, I know; after anyone is elected president, somebody or other steps forward and says they “always knew.”)

    Vaya con dios, Madelyn Dunham. And thanks.

  2. joanr16, consider that his grandmother is watching, but without the decrepit, infirm body, and will definitely know about her grandson’s history making achievement, come tomorrow night.

  3. Moonbat, I was thinking that too. She may have the best view of it all. I do know she lived long enough to know she did a great job raising him. I am sure she was proud of the man he has become.

  4. (btw, you may want to avoid the link to WaPo: many of the comments are sickening).

    Deepest condolences to Obama: it was obvious how much he cared for her that he was willing to suspend his campaign at a critical time to visit her. Whether he wins or loses, he made the right choice.
