No one can say that Obama didn’t fight hard for this. And maybe we can be grateful for Hillary’s stubbornness because she made Obama really fight for this. Finally, he has reached 2,158 delegates, and he is the Democratic Party candidate.

Months ago, I was at an Obama rally in Los Angeles, where Michelle Obama, Oprah and Maria Shriver spoke in support of him. I felt at that moment that I was possibly witnessing something historical. Now I know.

  1. You were,my dear… You were.

    Nearly one hundred and fifty years ago, Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation which declared:

    “all persons held as slaves …shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.”

    I did experience a swelling of emotion that I was utterly taken aback by. This was big. Obama was right. It really was our moment.

    In stark contrast to Hillary, Obama’s speech articulated and embraced all our hopes for the country and affirmed our collective belief in our “highest ideals and our highest aspirations.”

    In spite of Hillary’s unfortunate and jaundiced performance, last night was a special and historic night. Nothing anyone could do or say will ever diminish that.
