  •  I loved the comment from Jacob Heilbrunn... (4+ / 0-)

    I would hazzard to disagree with this one little part:

    "In essence, Obama returned to his earliest and most deeply felt theme, which is that optimism, not hatred, civility, not rancor, hope, not despair, should guide and elevate America, no matter how heated or turbulent political issues may become."

    From my POV, Obama never deviated from that theme.  The rancor overshadowed to the degree that many couldn't see it.  I never stopped seeing it, but I'm a pragmatist myself so my perspective is different than some.

    That rancor is one of the reasons I rarely post here. Momma always said if I didn't have anything good to say... and I'm betting Obama feels that way too.  No, I know he does.
