And then...there are those moments in politics that are not construed or political in the least...

And THAT is what makes me so proud to be an American...

Congratulations Obama!!!

Jodi ..

A suggestion for your music .. thingie.

"Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'." - Bob Dylan

Yes, we can.

That's poignant.

Having grown up in the Deep South during the last few years of Segregation, the victory was a very proud moment for me. The news on the election last night made me reminiscing when I was a child, seeing a beloved woman barred from a drug store due to the color of her skin and here I was, watching the first African American winning the Presidential Election

That was a DEFINING MOMENT! When I saw Jesse Jackson with tears in his eyes, That was so defining! Beautiful!

Well,Jodi...we found the reason that your sister moved to Chicago. She was fortunate enough to be standing right outside Grant Park last night to help celebrate Obama's big win for the Presidency. She sold 300 Obama buttons and she was among the throngs of people running through the streets and cheering. She said it was an experience of a lifetime! Since JFK, in my opinion, this is the only person to come close to his karisma. His speech last night was perfect and when he speaks everyone listens. From now on I will be listening to the "State of The Union" and other appearances by our President. No more switching channels to "not" listen. He is the leader we have yearned for since 1963. Positive change is around the corner....our lives will be the better from now on! And you and Niki are at the perfect age to benefit from our country's future. Dad

Cannnnnnndy: Jesse Jackson had that look in his eyes of someone who has battled a lifetime and who has finally achieved. Incredible.
Dad...You go, Dad!
