Obama's Still a Rock Star!

This Tuesday is otherwise unremarkable, except that OBAMA HAS CLAIMED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY NOMINATION!

To celebrate, I went back to the beginning of my love affair with Obama, when I saw him speak at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, and everyone was buzzing about his "rock star" speech the next day. Even though I was in the nose bleed section of the Fleet Center (Note my picture, where a sea of delegates is easily mistaken for an electric control panel, and I had to share my floor pass with four interns), I was spiritually moved (if you know me, that isn't to be taken lightly) and I just got chills a moment ago, watching his 2004 speech again on You Tube. Watch it below, or read the text here. If it doesn't make you hopeful for America, I don't know what will.
