"I don't know, I hope Obama wins"

Madison, Wisconsin: Ludell is 52 and has cerebral palsy. He cannot speak so points to letters and phrases on a keyboard. There isn't a video, and this took him some time-- he spelt out his message letter by letter-- but when asked what's next for America he said: "I don't know, I hope Obama wins."
Thanks Ludell, for taking the time to tell us what you think
