E Pluribus Unum

I will always remember the night in 1995 when the Seattle Mariners beat the New York Yankees in extra innings during the Divisional playoffs. I was sitting on a couch in Pentwater, Michigan (population 958), on a cold October night. I had listened to most of the game on radio during the drive up from Chicago and was lucky to catch the last few innings on TV. When the Mariners won with Edgar Martinez hitting the game winning double in the 11th to score Joey Cora and Ken Griffey Jr., I found myself jumping up and down in the living room… alone… and wishing I could hug someone.

Here I am feeling the same way on January 26, 2008. I have been avoiding the Presidential campaigns on this blog for the last few months. Why? Well, mainly because there are others who do this kind of blogging better, more comprehensively, and smarter than I. However, tonight I heard words that moved me – and I mean it. When a candidate makes you feel a surge of hope and belief, I feel like you should stand up and share it. Please take the time and listen to the speech below. It easily surpasses Barack’s ’04 convention speech. E Pluribus Unum.
