John Legend on the Election of Obama

November 10, 2009
Premiere of Overture Films' "Capitalism: A Love Story" - After Party

Newsweek featured a list of the top ten most importants dates on its website Mario Bartorimo, San Francisco Mayor, Condeliza Rice, everyone has an opinion on the matter.For John Legend its November the 4th, the day when Obama was elected, here’s his take on the subject :

Deep down, I knew it would happen. I spent the day excited, optimistic, and a little anxious. And then, as my band and I watched the results come in, President Obama’s victory was announced and the champagne flowed. Tears flowed too, of happiness, relief, ecstasy, pride. I was immensely proud to be American. Proud that Americans had united in a way I had never experienced. We had come together after 9/11, of course, but bonding optimistically over our future was a lot better than doing so over grief and shock. On Nov. 4, Americans reached out, grabbed each others’ hands and became stronger. Instead of grieving hugs, we exchanged jubilant high fives. Our country voted for change. Big change. We voted for a major cultural shift that would realign our country with the times we lived in—to fundamentally transform our approach to health care, education, and international relations. We had dealt a massive blow to cynicism and created a future that looked brighter than our past. Earlier limits on the dreams of American kids were blown away. Older black men and women who lived through decades of the struggle for civil rights saw a previously unimaginable dream come true. This time we were all hopeful, knowing that America would never be the same; it would be better. The era of fear was over and the era of hope had begun.

Andre Agassi is primarily concerned with Andre Agassi, according to a New York Times review of his ghostwritten autobiography Open. Reviewer Janet Maslinwrites that Agassi’s interests do not extend far “beyond tennis, more tennis, the misery of tennis, the way sportswriters misunderstand tennis and the irritating celebrity that tennis stardom confers.”

Other admissions from the book: Agassi took crystal meth in 1997, the worst year of his career; he’s lied about his love of tennis to interviewers over the years; and his frosted mullets may have included portions of toupee. Maslin calls the book “anticlimactic” but says it is saved by “somebody on the memoir team” with “great gifts for heart-tugging drama.
