“Change is coming; so is Obama”—The Prez on SMITH

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

By Larry Smith

Every once in a while I take a whirl through SMITH’s “word explorer”— a visualization of the words that SMITH community members use the most. For obvious reasons, I clicked on Obama and found all sorts of gems, most six-word stories of one kind of another, such as “Gave up anarchy for Barack Obama,” “Obama might have a reality show,” “A messed-up country needs Obama change,” “Barack Obama gets the words out,” and arguably my favorite, which was submitted to the “Six Words to Inspire a Nation” contest: “I can’t do it Obama self.” Happy Inauguration Day—what are your six words for the new President?
