I decided I could not miss a historic moment like watching the first African-American presidential nominee give an acceptance speech. He said everything I’ve wanted Democrats to say for years. He hit some key issues head on that previous candidates have pussyfooted around–oil, abortion, gay marriage. He pointed out that Republicans have basically been trying versions of the same policies over and over again and they’re not working. I thought his line about “policies of past vs. policies of the future” was really more “okay, old white dudes, you’ve had your turn; now get out of the way.” I think I’m ready to put my bumper sticker on the car and start handing out some literature. If we don’t win this thing, I’m moving to France.
