Barack Obama

We got home from rehearsal last night just in time to hear Barack Obama's speech in St. Paul. If you missed it, watch the video above or read it here—it was truly inspiring. As much as I admire Jimmy Carter and think he may be the greatest Ex-President we'll ever see, this is really the first time that I was actually moved by a politician. In listening to him, it made think that we might for once have an opportunity to have a serious discussion in this country about issues and solutions to our problems, because I think John McCain is imminently capable of it.

But I have no doubt that the Republican machine will force us all to spend the next six months swimming through raw sewage instead.
