Watching the Dem convention

I try to post the political at Corner for the most part (and I had more to say over there), but this man impressed me as someone to watch. His speech was wonderful, extremely well delivered with perfect timing- brings to mind all sorts of great leaders for both content and delivery. I don't know that much about him just yet, but if you didn't see it, at least go read the speech. There are realplayer files out there to listen to if you want to look at Corner and get his blog page. This man sounds like a true "uniter, not a divider".
My son thinks he ought to run for President.

A snippet: "That is the true genius of America, a faith in the simple dreams of its people, the insistence on small miracles. That we can tuck in our children at night and know they are fed and clothed and safe from harm. That we can say what we think, write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door. That we can have an idea and start our own business without paying a bribe or hiring somebody's son. That we can participate in the political process without fear of retribution, and that our votes will he counted — or at least, most of the time."
