Quote of the Day

“They said this day would never come. They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided; too disillusioned to ever come together around a common purpose.
But on this January night – at this defining moment in history – you have done what the cynics said we couldn’t do; what the state of New Hampshire can do in five days; what America can do in this New Year. In schools and churches; small towns and big cities; you came together as Democrats, Republicans and Independents to stand up and say that we are one nation; we are one people; and our time for change has come."
- Barack Obama on his victory in the '08 Iowa Caucus

Beautiful thing...the best and worst curse is for them to start comparing him to Kennedy. It reminds me of the "shining prince" portion of Malcolm X's eulogy given by Ossie Davis. He's a really bright and hopeful cat.
