    the moment occurred watching the crowd cheering BHO's speech the other night, that amazingly beautiful and appealing crowd of young, old, every race, every gender coming together for this higher purpose, and I thought, you know, this was the dream, when I was a kid in the 70's reading Pete Seeger books and learning in school about a tolerant diverse society, this was the dream of all good people, the civil rights martyrs, MLK, Bobby Kennedy, this America was their hope. And now it is real, and we have one of the giants of history, a Great President, leading us. This time is different. It gave birth to a different world.

    •  the end made me think of Lincoln "United States" (0+ / 0-)

      our POTUS elections every 4 years are like mini civil wars without the violence and especially where repubs have gone in crazy land.......Obama's ending really made me think/ feel LINCOLN!  and the union is preserved
