At some point, it stops being about politics.
It stops being about who's right or who's wrong.
It stops being about who's going to win, who's going to lose.

Yes, it was the same speech we've heard on television many times before. Yes, it was cold and we stood there for hours and hours. Yes, there were a few people there in the crowd (okay, early estimates at the event stated somewhere in the neighborhood of 40,000-ish).

Including myself.

I was there.

Yes, Angela! My kids got to see Obama at the Convention Center earlier this year and both got to shake his hand! And my son just turned 18 in time to vote for the first African American president of the United States. How cool is that.

My son, Nigel, who just voted for the first time last week.
(Hope Johnny Mango sees this so he can see how much he's grown since the 4th grade...)
