Liza Sabater, blogger extraordinaire at Culture Kitchen (among other places) has come out for Obama. Liza describes herself as “black Puerto Rican” and dropped a Spanish (Una carta abierta para Barack Obama) and English version.

Here’s an excerpt from the English side:

I am not a poet by any stretch of the imagination. I just find it really interesting that the only way I could work through my ambivalence about Obama was through poetic prose and that I could only do so in Spanish.

Why have I been ambivalent? I actually believe he is going to be a great President, even better than what Hillary Clinton could be. I am just cautious because, he will be after all the first black president, and I do believe in such a thing as “the curse of the first one out”.
