Black business leaders anticipating Obama's speech

The Small Business Times is reporting that Milwaukee-area black business leaders are eager to see Obama's speech tonight.

Dextra Hadnot, external affairs director at AT&T Wisconsin in Milwaukee, has been watching Obama's ascension closely.

"I've always been optimistic in my lifetime that our country could or would elect a person of color or even a woman president of the United States, and Barack Obama, not just because he is an African-American, he's the right person at the right time," Hadnot said. "And I'm especially proud of our country and our ability to put people like Barack Obama in position to lead our country."
