For everyone that watched the debate last night... Could you feel the electricity? This truly historic election was solidified last night!!! It was very fitting that the venue was the same place that the Oscars are held and it included all the glitz and glamour of any Hollywood event.
As I sat watching the debates I just could not help but repeating to myself "Wow"... A black man or a woman this is unbelieveable; THIS is what Dr. King, Bother Malcolm, JFK, RFK, Rosa Parks, Gloria Steinem, The Freedom Riders, our own Parents and Grandparents fought for ... This surreal moment right here.
I have to admit I was extremely proud of both candidates; Senators Clinton and Obama were able to actually discuss the issues, their views, and they even made thought-provoking and humorous quips to keep the moment light. I completely respected Senator Obama's Immigration response, repubs trying to use the low employment rate in the African American community to justify the ridiculous immigration reform bill they have come up with is simply proposterous. To be perfectly frank, immigrants, for the most part, do the jobs that most Americans (black, white, or polka dot) think they are "too good" to do, and getting rid of the current immigrants is going to do nothing but cut off our own noses to spite our faces! But I digress.. My favorite line of the night came from Senator Clinton 'It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush and it will take a Clinton to clean up after this Bush" (Paraphrased).
Here is a rushed transcript from CNN of the debate
On the Repubs side... I cannot believe the turn of events for that party, it has gone from a moshpit of candidates to McCain v. Romney and it got real ugly real quick... The repub candidates main goal right to prove who is the truer repub and would represent the repub views the best (especially to that all important Evangelical/Bible Belt constituency). Well for the sake of brevity please go to the links below about that debate...
SUPER Sunday this could be the first time in over 30years that a team goes undefeated all the way to the Super Bowl and SUPER Tuesday no matter how this plays out American History is currently being written right before our eyes!!
Have a great weekend!!
