from senator (and now democratic presidential candidate) barack obama's victory speech last night (read the full text here)...
"all of you chose to support a candidate you believe in deeply. but at the end of the day, we aren't the reason you came out and waited in lines that stretched block after block to make your voice heard. you didn't do that because of me or senator clinton or anyone else. you did it because you know in your hearts that at this moment – a moment that will define a generation – we cannot afford to keep doing what we've been doing. we owe our children a better future. we owe our country a better future. and for all those who dream of that future tonight, i say – let us begin the work together. let us unite in common effort to chart a new course for america."
this man is fantastic. i get goosebumps when he speaks. it was an honor to vote for him in the primary election and it will be an honor to vote for him in the presidential election in november.
plus, check out the awesome shirt i bought yesterday to celebrate. this one and this one are cool too.
