137. 37-Year-Old 3/4 Black 1/4 Irish Male In NY State Who Doesn't Read The News Much

Just before waking, I have this dream: I was in a town on the Hudson River which has a view south towards New York City. Walking through the town's hilly streets, I catch glimpses of Obama walking by, usually no more than a block away. He's wearing a riotously colorful jacket, a sort of deconstructed plaid.

The streets are empty, like early morning when the commuters all troop down to the train. His expression is intense and thoughtful, with a small smile, as if he's composing a speech in his head as he walks, or listening to something only he can hear. He leans forward as he walks.

On the overlook above the river, there is a outdoor setup of a news crew -- maybe ABC -- and they are interviewing Michelle Obama. She looks like that awful picture of her on the cover of the National Review. Someone else is standing off to the side, waiting his turn. He's wearing a mudcloth skullcap.

I don't see anyone else in the town, but I walk by an office and hear two women who look like they are from the Caribbean discussing the election. They seem to be in good humor.

"Obama...wearing a riotously colorful jacket, a sort of deconstructed plaid"=his being a 'mutt' (African-white-Muslim-Christian);

2nd paragraph=contemplating of what he will really do while the country is still 'asleep' (silent street/empty);

Michelle Obama=badly wants to be in the limelight equally just like her husband;

"Someone else is standing off to the side, waiting his turn. He's wearing a mud cloth skullcap"=someone African or who wants be considered African (black), he's a gang member and he wants to be in the limelight too.

2 women from Caribbean=2 Caribbean-speaking countries make fun of the US election.
