It's been a year since one of the greatest nights of my life - election night 2008. For one 24-hour period, everything that was wrong with the world was suddenly okay. Fixable. The feeling in Washington the next morning was brilliant. In a city that went 92% to Obama, there was an incredible and rare sense of true community.
For 2010, I'd like to hear THIS version of Janet Jackson return to music. An absolutely amazing and moving song from 1993's janet.
Today we went to the Newseum and saw this photo of Obama, which won a Pulitzer Prize this year. It was taken by Damon Winter of the NYT in Chester PA on October 28, a week before the election. I understand that some people are disappointed with him, but I think nine months is not enough time to right so many complex wrongs. We have to let this play out.
