If you haven't watched Obama's victory speech in SC, you should. If you're American, and you haven't voted in the primaries yet, you should watch. If you're not American, and you want to know what it means to be American, you should watch. It's so nice to have a candidate I can vote *for*, rather than having to vote against.

Thanks for the link. That was amazing, as is the fact of his win with more than twice the votes Hillary got.

Caroline Kennedy wrote an Op-Ed piece in the New York Times endorsing Obama; it's pretty inspirational too.

In short, he seems more interested in doing the right thing and doing what's good for the country than in what party, race, or religion someone is.

I did too.

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] babalon_it for sharing it -- I hadn't heard it. It was amazing!
