In my lifetime...

"In my lifetime..."

My wife and I keep saying that as we look at Barack Obama accepting the Democratic nomination.

Regardless of our political affiliation, the gravity and magnitude of the night is fantastic.

Obama's speech tossed civility to the four winds, and jumped on John McCain with both feet, linking him solidly with George W. Bush and the myriad of problems that have come up during the latter portions of the Bush Administration. Despite all of the painting of McCain as the second coming of George W. Bush, John McCain is a separate man in and of his own making.

Thursday night's speech -- no, Thursday night's coming out party for Barack Obama --  was nothing short of incredible. The GOP must come out swinging for the fences next week -- and I'm looking forward to it.

And on that note, John McCain ran an ad Thursday that focused on the import of Obama's nomination and the fact that it was on the 45th anniversary of MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech.

"Senator Obama, this is truly a good day for America. Too often the achievements of our opponents go unnoticed. So I wanted to stop and say, congratulations. How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day. Tomorrow, we'll be back at it. But tonight Senator, job well done." --John McCain.

That was a class move on McCain's part.

Now, despite the attack with both feet from Obama in his speech, let's see if we can finish this thing without the partisan vindictiveness that has characterized the nearly the past 20 years -- from both sides of the aisle. The infighting is getting old. Can we learn to disagree without being disagreeable?

As I've told a number of folks, I have reasons to like and not like both candidates. And though I am a conservative-libertarian by nature, I haven't made my decision yet. I'm not planning to make a decision until debate time.

The game is affot. May the best man win.

1 Yup, and the best man is Obama. He wins. But, for me it's not over yet. This is just a start for Obama, to prove what he said in his campaign. Looking at the media report for his 100 first day achievement, I guess, we still expecting something more from him. Regards, Edric the erezioni

7 Hi Michael! Wow! This is so surprising. As far as I'm concerned, there are a lot of Black people there in America for a long time already. Too bad, they were not given much attention. Thanks for this. Keep sharing please....
