Why I'm voting for Obama

As much as the smart policy decisions, as much as the opportunity to make history, as much as the reshaping of America's image abroad, this small quote from Obama's speech claiming the Democratic Presidential nomination embodies why I think it is important that he be the person to represent The United States to the world:
What you won't hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon – that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize. Because we may call ourselves Democrats and Republicans, but we are Americans first. We are always Americans first.
