Presidential Campaign Watch Party: Muslim Student Organization

A hand-crafted blue map declares that an Obama presidency will lead to "A More Perfect Union"

Blue balloons and streamers, Obama-Biden posters, and a table with all the fixings- placed under a blue tablecloth of course. I am at an unofficial watch party for the election. The four students in attendance- Sahar Ejaz, Farah Ali, and Farah and Bushra Naz- are all friends. Two of them are sisters. They’re all part of the Muslim Students Organization, and they’re all rooting for Obama.

“Even if he doesn’t live up to all the thing he has promised, we will still be better off than we are today,” says Sahar, the recent MU graduate who is hosting the watch party. “He cant live up to everything, he’s not superman,” she says, “ but still things will be better.”

When the numbers start coming in the percentages are only off by a few percent, Farah asks how it can be that close. “But everyone loves Obama,” she says. “Except the other half of America,” Sahar jokes.

She is firm in her choice of candidate. She is wearing a black shirt with a red, white and blue Obama stamp printed on it. Her socks are designed like the American flag.

  1. I love how the obama poster and more perfect union map are surrounded by Batman memorabilia. If batman is the dark knight, maybe Obama is our white knight?
