Watch this great, touching endorsement of Obama. Daniel Drinker has Downs Syndrome.
Edited on Sat Mar-22-08 09:53 PM by Bigleaf
Dan and Will Drinker are brothers who are making a documentary together. The story is about Dan's life. If you have stories to contribute, please send them along.

Quoting Dans brother Will:

"Dan has been following the presidential campaign with great passion. He has been talking my ear off recently about Senator Obama and I decided, after his speech in our native Philadelphia, that it was time to ask Dan to share his thoughts. I have always thought my brother to be an excellent judge of character and I feel his opinion is as valuable as the most famous or respected political authority because he speaks the truth and adds nothing more."

The last 20 seconds is great.

Please pass this along if you believe in having something to believe in. Be it Dan, or Barack, or Hillary, or McCain, or Ralph Nader, or yourself.

2. It doesn't take great intellect to read character.
Young Will Drinker is a good judge of character. I don't know any Down syndrome people personally, but I've seen the almost universal acknowledgment of their skills in reading character. This was an awesome clip.
