Wasn't it beautiful? What an amazing night. Obama was amazing.

After watching all the major speeches this week, I felt excited, hopeful and invigorated and wondered to myself how anyone could envision anything different for the future of this country.

And I had to remind myself that I'm fortunate to be insulated in a world of writers, people who think broadly and deeply about things and that there are millions of people who don't do that at all.

I'm not trying to send a cloud over this amazing week, just trying to guess at how many people are out there who don't buy into Obama/Biden and speculate as to why that might be.

I'll be watching the RNC for clues...

Lisa, I know many Republicans and believe they simply refuse to vote across party lines for various reasons. Regardless of the Democratic candidate, they're going to find fault. Next week will definitely be interesting, especially now that McCain's surprise VP pick has caught everyone off guard.

Kristen, it WAS an amazing night! My husband hung out downtown while I watched at home with our son. We also taped Obama's speech and some of the citizen presentations leading up to it to show our girls this weekend.

One of my brothers asked if Denver will ever be the same and really, I don't think it ever will. What a historic moment, especially for a city who had a devoted KKK member for mayor in the 1920s. Thank goodness times change!! K.

I heard Obama give an inspiring speech about moving into a better future and building a better America. It brought tears to my eyes twice. How disappointing to read the news reports after, which seemed to be about a different speech altogether.

Funny how the media can do that, Shauna. I was encouraged to hear primarily positive reports immediately following the end of the DNC here in Denver. Now we get to see what happens next. K.

I plan to vote for Obama. I hope he's strong enough to carry the hopes and dreams of a lot of people. I suppose we'll see.

I like that photo too, Carleen!

Charles, He's definitely surrounded/ing himself with very smart people who share his vision. I believe if he stays grounded and remains true to his family, he'll have the strength to do some remarkable things. Thanks for stopping by and again, stay safe there in LA! K.

I didn't watch even a second of the convention, didn't feel the need. Anyone who follows my blog, and my comments, can probably figure out that nothing in the world would induce me to vote for a Republican. On top of that, I think Mr. Obama has potential.

And THAT is a true compliment, considering its source. :) Thankfully, Gerry, many seem to agree. K.
