Obama is important now because he is the United States president . Also, Obama is important now because he has alot of ablitilty to change the world to a better commuity . I feel we should have Obama stay the president because everyday is a new day and everyday things change with his help and speeches. I feel the voteing is a good thing for the commuity because it gives Obama better courage and the world .
