Herstory and History

Tuesday, Senator Clinton gave the speech of a lifetime, and it was a remarkable moment. The woman who came the closest ever to the Oval Office, who had bested all the White Guys, was proclaiming her support for the Black Guy. Yesterday, Senator Barack Obama became the first African American to be nominated by a major political party in the United States. Today, Senator Obama will accept the Democratic Party nomination.

I've been enjoying the speeches. The rhetoric is red meat. Senator Clinton, President Clinton, and Senator Biden know how to deliver. This election has too much at stake for four more Republican years. That message was delivered loud and often. Barack Obama is the man. That message was delivered loud and often.
