Quote of the Day

Andrew Sullivan on the Michelle Obama speech:

It hits you, doesn't it? I'm watching all the usual biography for a first lady and president and listening to her brother and realizing: black Americans - proud, unapologetic, culturally mainstream African-Americans - are now running this show. I knew this was coming. But watching it, even in these tiny ways, is striking.

How great that is; and how long a time it has been coming. Whatever happens in this crazy election season, this matters... One of the best, most moving, intimate, rousing, humble, and beautiful speeches I've heard from a convention platform. Maybe she should be running for president. You don't need any commentary from me. This was a home-run. And sincere. Thank God that in the end, the truth struggles out there. Just look at her mother's face.
