Spirit Of Arthur Ashe Will Lead Obama To Victory In Virginia

A so-called swing state in the 2008 election is Virginia. Polls show the race in that state as very close.

Will Barack Obama be able to carry Virgina in 2008? Doing so would make him the first Democrat to carry the state in a Presidential election since Lyndon Johnson in 1964.

Yes— Barack Obama will win Virginia in 2008.

The spirit of Richmond, Virginia native Arthur Ashe will lead Senator Obama to victory in Virginia.

Arthur Ashe lived 1943-1993. He died of AIDS likely acquired in a blood transfusion. 

He was strong both on and off the tennis court.

On the court, Mr. Ashe was elected to the Tennis Hall of Fame.

Off the court, Mr. Ashe worked hard against South African apartheid, protested poor American treatment of Haitian boat people, addressed the United Nations General Assembly regarding AIDS, and served as Chairman of the American Heart Association.

When he died, Mr. Ashe’s body lied in state at the Governor’s Mansion in Richmond. He was first person to receive that honor since Confederate General Stonewall Jackson.

Mr. Ashe always hit the right note of keeping his own identity, while at the same time being a forceful advocate of welcoming and accepting all people. It was clear that when all was said and done, it was the whole human race he was most concerned with.

The spirit of Arthur Ashe will guide and inform Senator Obama as he campaigns in Virginia. The spirit of Arthur Ashe will move the people of Virginia to follow the right course and vote for Senator Obama on Election Day.

  1. I hope you are right. It would be wonderful to see the Democrats win one or two Southern states.

  3. winning virgina is not a bragging right for either side, the state filled with rebels and mullets and hatred. I cant stand virginia, its worse than west virginia which is pretty depressing, I am not sure why anyone would campaign there, though i have been in puerto rico for the last three weeks i would say this backwards ass ran island is still better run and has a better population than the state of virginia.

  4. I think Virginia is full of many loyal Americans who will proud to have Mr. Obama as President.
