The desire to be better is ephemeral, and to some extent it’s bound to be disappointed, but without it the Bush era ending today would be irredeemable.
For me, this will be the enduring memory of election night 2008: One generation released its grief. The next looked up confusedly, eager to please and yet unable to comprehend just what the tears were about.
This is really powerful. I love this lady.
Like many Americans, I first saw Barack Obama at the 2004 Democratic convention. I remember telling my wife excitedly, ‘This guy is probably stuffed after a cup of minestrone!’
Did anyone else notice the Republicans played Heart’s “Barracuda” like 3 songs after McCain finished his speech at the convention last night? WTF? I’d really like to have been there for the decision making process behind that one: “This song is just BAD ASS — John McCain is a bad ass! YEAH ADDING TO PLAYLIST!!” And it looks like Heart is confused, and rightfully pissed, too.
