JERUSALEM — A written prayer that Barack Obama left this week in the cracks of the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, asks God to guide him and guard his family, an Israeli newspaper reported Friday.
“Lord – Protect my family and me,” reads the note published in the Maariv daily. “Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will.” Continue reading

Barack Obama feels like he is carrying the hopes and dreams of people around the world on his shoulders –a burden his aides believe has created unrealistic expectations of what he can achieve if he becomes the first black president.
Whether we like it or not, it has been extremely hard for anyone with a pulse not to get caught up in Obamania. Politicans,pundits, and Hollywood also have all been swept up in this wave of support for Senator Obama.
My partner P Moor and I saw this Obamania first hand in August 07′, when Senator Obama came here(NYC)to make a speech at a campaign fundraiser at a downtown hotel. He gave an inspiring and fantastic speech.
People of all ages,races and ethnicities were electrified and just could not get enough of the Senator(one senior even asked to stand on my chair so she could get a glimpse of Obama as he shook hands).

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) — The Orlando Police Department found dozens of city owned vehicles vandalized Saturday.
The vandal or vandals appear to have political intentions; most of the vehicles were spray painted with anti Obama sayings, with ‘Obama’ misspelled several times. Some of their vehicles had their gas caps removed.
Officials said that gas caps were removed from several of the vehicles and they aren’t sure if gas was stolen or if something could have been added to the tanks that will damage the engines.
The person or persons left a business card with political ramblings and other phrases such as ‘How ‘Bout them Gators’ and ‘Legalize Marijuana/ Stop Building Prisons’.
Police are investigating but have no leads and no estimate on the damages.
