We Are Going to Do It -- Together
Hillary Clinton stood up and put Humpty Dumpty back together tonight. Clinton is right: this is not an election about her, or Obama -- it's about taking back this country, throwing the corrupt, incompetent, and unprincipled out of power.
I take back every mean or cynical thing I have said about Hillary Clinton this past year. She reminded me -- and every Democrat in the country -- of what this is all about, and that we are all in this together.
You want to be reminded of the stakes? Listen to Dennis Kucinich setting the crowd on fire at the convention today. (The networks and cable channels ignored this, obviously.)
The founding fathers knew that these dark days would come (See, e.g., Federalist No. 10 ("Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm.")); and they knew that the American people would find their way back to the light.
By the way, this "Funkytown" themed commercial (currently on heavy rotation on MSNBC) is an advertisement for nuclear energy.
