I risk repeating myself here, but regardless of your political tendencies, we all have to be proud in this historic occasion. Frankly, I’m surprised this has happened in my lifetime. It was a special moment to have my daughter sit down and watch this speech. Amazingly, from her perspective, this is normal. An African-American presidential candidate? “Duh, what’s the big deal, Dad?”
It was very touching to see the emotion of the older African-American folks in the crowd. They must have been deeply moved in a way that’s simply impossible to measure. Wow.
