We are approaching the milestone of 100 days, events are moving at breakneck speed.  The economy is still in dire straits and we are still prosecuting two wars.  As the punditocracy of the right takes every shot they can no matter how weak it might appear, the Netroots counter their disinformation in a never ending pitched battle.  And all the while the remainder of the Conservative movement is lashing out dangerously like a wounded animal half-crazed with pain and rage.  

In the melee that is politics it is easy to lose sight of what inspires.  To that end, here is 3 minutes and 21 seconds worth of reminder.  I still get goosebumps when I watch it.  I predict I always will.

It is for this that we hoped.
It is for this that we waited.
It is this that we now have.

Now, take a deep breath through that smile, square your shoulders, and as the man said, "Let's get to work".

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
