Obama went to my high school
He was class of 78, I was class of 68. I knew there was something I liked about this guy.
Punahou is a private school in Honolulu, and the tuition is substantial.
The only reason I was able to attend was because my mother was a teacher there and the tuition was waived.
A very good school, though I am probably the only graduate to become a bricklayer.
Go Obama!

Obama will be the next President of the United States...in 2012 or 2016. Regardless, he's definately someone that the you can vote FOR based on personality. I've heard people call him a DINO, but they are full of shit. Obama is the most charismatic person we have had in our party since Clinton, maybe even Kennedy (both JFK and RFK.)

2. That is pretty cool
But I wouldn't vote on someone because of their so-called personality. That's just bullshit. People need to vote because they believe in the same policies. And to compare anyone else to another person in my opinion is insulting to both because each person has their own personality. I only went to high school with two now NFL players. I would consider Obama in a couple of years. 2012 or 2016 would be good years.

3. You are not the only Punahou alum here...
And one member of my class is/was a lineman for Hawaian Tel (or whatever they are morphed into these days), another was a C&C lifeguard.
