    Barack Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope,” features a catchy title. It has a taste of bravery mixed with confidence. There’s nothing Pollyanna about that. I may well not support almost everything he says, but he’s our president, and then for me, he creates confidence. That will do more for any region than any number of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy sustains us through trying times. Boy, we’ve had them. I’m from West Texas, and I did not vote for Bush. When McCain ran against Obama, I was a citizen of Arizona, but I gave audacious hope a chance. The fight for progress and laying the foundations of prosperity is not over. I have seen the quips of those that don’t think Obama is capable of doing it. But step back a second. Would anyone have all of us fail in order to tarnish the star of an incumbent for whom they did not vote? Trying to keep our priorities straight, let’s work together with this president and build our future.
