A More Perfect Union

THE SINGLE best political speech and address on race in America that I have ever heard. It was like the Gettysburg Address, Kennedy's "Ask Not" speech, and the "I Have A Dream" speech all rolled into one. And then some. It was sweeping, profound, daring, intelligent, compassionate, vulnerable, honest, visionary, and absolutely beautiful.

I was moved beyond tears. I was moved to more action.

This wise man with tremendous courage believes in us. He spoke to us as adults. I can only hope we believe as much in ourselves. That we can act like the adults we are. He makes me proud to be American, and I'm far from your conventional patriot.

Your enthusiasm for this man is infectious, Craig. I'm not an American, so I can't vote for him. But you've certainly made me more aware of him. Keep up the good work on spreading the word about.

I hope he prevails.
