Madelyn Dunham, the grandma of Presidential candidate Barack Obama passed away from complications of cancer. This is so sad to die on the eve of the election. I know she tried to hold on, but in her heart she knows he will win. My prayers go out to the Obama family, and I’m glad he took the time off from the campaign to spend time with “toot” as he called her. This was the last of his past. I know all too well how this feels.

Excerpt: FORT LAUDERDALE – Hundreds of early voters at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center pepped up when Hip Hop royalty appeared unexpectedly, urging voters to support Barack Obama for president.
Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Diddy and Russell Simmons had voters screaming, reaching for cell phone cameras and forming a throng around the library on Sistrunk Boulevard when the stars arrived in a fleet of black SUVs to shake hands, take pictures and stump for Obama. [Source]
