Today, August 27th 2008, Barack Obama was nominated by the Democratic party to be President of the United States.
It is also worth noting that his chief rival for the nomination was a woman.
It shouldn’t matter what your political affiliation is; this is an historic achievement and is worth celebrating.
I would encourage everyone to sit back for just a minute and think about what this means for our country, our children and our future. It doesn’t matter that Hillary Clinton wasn’t the nominee; what matters is she easily could have been.
Tonight, when I look my daughters in the eye and tell them they can be whatever they want provided they are willing to work for it… I can really mean it.
