Barack Obama

There is a line in the Ani Difranco song "Hello Birmingham" (about violence against abortion doctors and clinics) that always chokes me up: "outside my city is bracing for the next killing thing. standing by the bridge and praying for the next Dr Martin Lurther King". I couldn't help thinking of this line last night while listening to Barack Obama deliver the keynote address at the DNC. I got goose bumps, I cried and I really felt an overwhelming sense of relief that this fresh face in politics offers so much in the way of pulling everyone together- really uniting. I mean, Clinton is a great speaker and all, but Obama's speech was so brilliantly crafted, intelligent, heart-felt, and amazingly delivered. You can watch it here and you really ought to watch it, if you missed it last night. My parents should especially watch it online. Missing it to watch "Queer Eye" is absolutely not acceptable. We are on our way out now to buy a vhs tape as we are going to tape the convention tonight as we'll be hanging out with Goldie, drinking some beer and eating some yummy food with some other cool Borders peoples.
