I watched Ted Kennedy's endorsement on CNN last night and read the transcript a few minutes later on The Huffington Post. I'm nervoused-ed and excited.
Whatever the outcome of these primaries and the subsequent presidential election, what's happening right now in politics is exciting. I'm inspired. I'd like to think that turning 30 and growing up a bit is responsible for my increasing interest in politics, but all credit goes to what's happening right now with Barack Obama (especially) and Hillary. I don't ever recall politics being this exciting. To have a black man and a woman as viable candidates for Leader Of The Free World, is just exciting. A black man, y'all. A woman!
I'm nervous to be hopeful, but it's hard not to imagine what a powerful impact it would have on our black sons and daughters to see a reflection of themselves in the White House, or for girls to see a woman in charge. It's nervousing, and inspirational, and SO exciting.
