Why I'm Backing Obama

By Susan Eisenhower
Saturday, February 2, 2008; A15

Forty-seven years ago, my grandfather Dwight D. Eisenhower bid farewell to a nation he had served for more than five decades. In his televised address, Ike famously coined the term "military-industrial complex," and he offered advice that is still relevant today. "As we peer into society's future," he said, we "must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow."
Today we are engaged in a debate about these very issues. Deep in America's heart, I believe, is the nagging fear that our best years as a nation may be over. We are disliked overseas and feel insecure at home. We watch as our federal budget hemorrhages red ink and our civil liberties are eroded. Crises in energy, health care and education threaten our way of life and our ability to compete internationally. There are also the issues of a costly, unpopular war; a long-neglected infrastructure; and an aging and increasingly needy population.
I am not alone in worrying that my generation will fail to do what my grandfather's did so well: Leave America a better, stronger place than the one it found.
Given the magnitude of these issues and the cost of addressing them, our next president must be able to bring about a sense of national unity and change. As we no longer have the financial resources to address all these problems comprehensively and simultaneously, setting priorities will be essential. With hard work, much can be done.
The biggest barrier to rolling up our sleeves and preparing for a better future is our own apathy, fear or immobility. We have been living in a zero-sum political environment where all heads have been lowered to avert being lopped off by angry, noisy extremists. I am convinced that Barack Obama is the one presidential candidate today who can encourage ordinary Americans to stand straight again; he is a man who can salve our national wounds and both inspire and pursue genuine bipartisan cooperation. Just as important, Obama can assure the world and Americans that this great nation's impulses are still free, open, fair and broad-minded.
No measures to avert the serious, looming consequences can be taken without this sense of renewal. Uncommon political courage will be required. Yet this courage can be summoned only if something profoundly different transpires. Putting America first -- ahead of our own selfish interests -- must be our national priority if we are to retain our capacity to lead.
The last time the United States had an open election was 1952. My grandfather was pursued by both political parties and eventually became the Republican nominee. Despite being a charismatic war hero, he did not have an easy ride to the nomination. He went on to win the presidency -- with the indispensable help of a "Democrats for Eisenhower" movement. These crossover voters were attracted by his pledge to bring change to Washington and by the prospect that he would unify the nation.
It is in this great tradition of crossover voters that I support Barack Obama's candidacy for president. If the Democratic Party chooses Obama as its candidate, this lifelong Republican will work to get him elected and encourage him to seek strategic solutions to meet America's greatest challenges. To be successful, our president will need bipartisan help.
Given Obama's support among young people, I believe that he will be most invested in defending the interests of these rising generations and, therefore, the long-term interests of this nation as a whole. Without his leadership, our children and grandchildren are at risk of growing older in a marginalized country that is left to its anger and divisions. Such an outcome would be an unacceptable legacy for any great nation.
Susan Eisenhower, a business consultant, is the author of four books, most recently "Partners in Space: US-Russian Cooperation After the Cold War."

Wouldn't it be beautiful in january 2009 to witness a woman or a black man becomes President of the United States of America.What a glorious day it would be.Either one would be a good President.I Hope sincerly that the american people will make the right choice this time.It is with great sadness that we're witnessing the morale decline of this great country that President Einsenhower lead with such prestige after the second world war.It was a time when the name American means prestige, compassion,bravery, courage,discipline ,respect for human life.

How this decline happened?From a creditor nation the united states becomes a debtor nation,As a friend of mine reminded me last week how did a president found a prosperous country,and in the first year of his mandate the surplus evaporated as ether.Yet the republicans want to glorify their mediocre president to the point that Senator Mac Cain wants to prolong an imoral and illegal war for one hundred more years.

It should be no surprise to anybody to hear President Einsenhower's grand daughter, disatisfied and discouraged by the Republican party,endorses Senator Obama's candidacy. I can not wait to witness this great event in the history of a great nation.God bless america.

What a hopeful hymn:Yes we can.Si se puede ,oui nous pouvons;wi nou kapab.May The Almighty protect our leader of hope ,Good luck Senator Obama you deserve my vote.In the beginning I doubt it was possible,but with your conviction and the enthousiasm of the youg people of this country I finally realized this great nation which sent the first man to the moon can do anything when its people are united.

Indeed, we can if we want to change the world where no human being will be assassinated for his or her political convictions.Where no more a young mother will have to kill her baby because she can not take care of him or her.Yes we can change the world where no child will be left behind ;where no more a young man wishes he could be in another land because of the bombs that are killing his friends .Yes we can change the world in respecting every human being's life ;whether he or she is an african in Dafour ,an arab in Palestine,or an old lady in Orlando.Yes we can.Let's pass the torch to a new generation of americans so we can live in peace and harmony.Yes we can share the wealth of the world without having to kill each other.Let hope rings.for the world is thirsty for peace ,progress ,liberty and justice for all..
