O’Boba the builder
Not sure anyone noticed, but in his New Hampshire victory speech Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, intoned several times, “Yes, we can!” Resounding cheers and chantback followed.
“Yes, we can!” is the signature rallying cry of PBS’s kid’s favorite, Bob the Builder; perfectly capturing the-we-can-do-this-together effort by Obama’s campaign to get out the kidvote. As Chicagoans, he and I know that he is tapping into a deeply traditional Chicago voting bloc. Can we succeed in building this house before the wicked wolves (and you know who I mean) blow the house down? Stay tuned.
