Day 19 – Dear diary, I’m continuing to attentively research John McCain and Barack Obama to create the Presidential Poetic Portrait.  Yet, at the same time I am weaving together the finishing touches for the last Presidential Poetic Portrait and visual poetry to honor President George W. Bush as he completes his second term.  The 2008 election year has enormously challenged my creative cleverness.  But, in the end, polished Presidential Poetic Portraits and visual poetry will uphold my unique tradition of honoring Presidents of the United States.

Day 18 – Dear diary, I’m feeling waterlogged with the over abundance of information about McCain and Obama.  I think the information gathering is the most time consuming.  But, the more information I have on McCain and Obama then the more dynamic the Presidential Poetic Portrait will be.  When I’ve thoroughly processed the material the original poem spills onto the paper.  No matter how much I’d like to rush, I know the original poem will only emerge after key points are woven into place.  The visual poem will be carved out by using the words of the poem.  I’ll need music by the Temptations, Sam Cooke and Bob Marley.

Day 17 – Dear diary, will CNN actually reveal more than we already know about John McCain and Barack Obama?  Or, is McCain, Obama Revealed just another one or two hour photo opt for McCain and Obama to serve up yet another series of speech making.  By now, if we, the people of America don’t know McCain and Obama, then who’s at fault?  I’m, just, saying, the real John McCain and Barack Obama may have stood up a long time ago and we didn’t or chose not to notice; I’m, just, saying.  Well, as Eddie Kendricks of the Temptations sang I’ll Keep on Truckin’ with the Presidential Poetic Portrait and visual poetry.

Dear diary, since John McCain or Barack Obama will become President; Americans are wondering who they are.  There are those seeking to define who they think the real John McCain and Barack Obama are.  Sure, we know about the military and political service of McCain; and Obama’s teen drug use and Chicago’s community organization.  But, does Americans know the real John McCain and Barack Obama well enough to choose one as President?  Is it important for Americans to know the real John McCain and Barack Obama? Still, the Presidential Poetic Portrait and visual poetry is a real Mission: Possible.

Dear diary, John McCain and Barack Obama are on a media roll.  It’s a four day presumptive presidential blitz; the Saddleback forum, Fox News Character, Conduct and CNN’s Unmasked.  McCain and Obama haven’t had a shortage of air time to sway voters their way.  But, are these media outlets helping or hurting their run for the office of United States President?  In reality, it’s helping me to experience a flood of significant words to portray John McCain and Barack Obama.  At any rate, McCain and Obama’s compelling information continues to fuel the Presidential Poetic Portrait and visual poetry.

Dear diary, the Saddleback forum gave John McCain and Barack Obama the opportunity to expound upon their faith in God, moral dilemmas and continue stomp speeches.  The forum highlighted McCain and Obama’s views on abortion, stem cell research and of course why they’re seeking the presidency.  It was interesting to note that McCain and Obama identified freedom as a reason worth dying for.  Um, it appeared as though McCain and Obama removed their campaigning façade, for a few moments.  This forum gave me many ideas for the Presidential Poetic Portrait and visual poetry.

Dear diary, the Saddleback Civil Forum is supposedly a platform for John McCain and Barack Obama to address religion, faith and politics.  Or, is this really about both candidates cunningly attempting to woo votes from a religious group?  For McCain, this forum could ease the difficulty connecting with evangelical Christians.  And, for Obama, the forum affords an opportunity to vie for the same evangelicals as well as accentuate his Christian beliefs.  Perhaps, after it is all said and done, we’ll understand the hype and significance of this forum.  Well, by faith, I am creating the most interesting Presidential Poetic Portrait and visual poetry.
