I'm not one to talk politics much, not nearly as much as John here. That's for sure. But I've gotta say that THAT was one heck of a speech last night from President-elect Obama. It was moving enough to see Jesse Jackson cry. Being a skinny, Jewish, white boy, I don't feel the enormity of the day in the depths of my soul the same as a black man. It's not ingrained in who I am. But I could certainly feel the passion from those there in Grant Park.
I wonder what he would say. Or him.
And now we can officially call W a "lame duck". ;)
The message from Barack that I most respect is that he wasn't counting on our belief in his ability to bring change to Washington, but ours. Most inspiring. I hope people realize that we get to work together to make a better tomorrow. Challenges, yes, but faced with hope.
Helped me get out of bed this morning.

The speech was very reminiscent of a JFK speech. The moment was so unforgettable with all those people there crying with the dream of hope. Definitely a great moment in history.
I'll defer to my man, Prince, on his always poignant blog. Make sure to read to the end.
