No matter if you are a Democrat or Republican, tonight was a night for all Americans. As a country we leaped a hurdle. The gap of race closed just a little bit between whites and people of color. Mr. Obama’s nomination on the 45th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior’s “I Have A Dream” speech is not only fitting but proper. John McCain’s acknowledgement was that of a fellow countrymen, not a politician. Whomever we supported in the past, who we will support in the future is something to discuss and fight for tomorrow. In the meantime, the words of Dr. King were prescient:
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." In this campaign, let us judge each candidate by that standard.
