Demopalooza, Day 3

The most gratifying thing about watching Barack Obama recieve the Democratic nomination wasn't Hillary's move for acclimation and releasing her delegates to make it unanimous...though that was classy and leaves her looking good for 2012 or 2016. It wasn't even Mr. Bill's endorsement, which the GOP will make fun of after his previous comments. Nor was it Biden's story, which is amazing and stirring.

It was the tears of joy on the face of all the older African-American delegates, who were finally seeing it happen, perhaps the finest possible tribute to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., on the eve of the anniversary of his most famous speech, where he dreamed of an America where this was possible.
