ELECTION 2008: Race Speech

This almost made me a Barack supporter. I'm still with my girl, but I'll say this now: WOW. As Jon Stewart pointed out, he spoke to the country as adults.

I now have no problem with him as president.

It seems we're in the mode of "getting to know our candidates," as Hillary took the chance to say some touching words as well.

What does this say about race vs. sex in this country?

Simple: that women have come further. Please note that the offending rhetoric is racial in nature, not engendered.

both you AND timmy had to rethink obama after this speech. i find this fascinating. also, your position is that women have come further than blacks?

hope you are feeling better today --
