WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:


Before she left for Washington, D.C., to be sworn in for her second term in Congress last week, Democratic Rep. Kathy Castor spoke to reporters in south Tampa. Castor was asked if she had a different sense of optimism because there will be someone new in the White House.

“Yes, I’m absolutely thrilled to begin to work with President Barack Obama. And I look forward to January 20th, being on the platform there representing my great community as President Barack Obama is sworn in, looking out at the Lincoln Memorial where Dr. Martin Luther King gave his speech, his “I have a dream” speech. … People are also full of hope.”

WMNF will bring you live coverage on Tuesday.

I've never been so proud to be an American as the Obama's election has made me. I hope he can seize the opportunities and live up to our hopes.

May it please ...

May God grant us this one single wish: Please, may this man BE who he appears to be.


May God give US the strength and courage to seize the opportunities. No time like the present.
