Why Obama's victory was so important
Old-friend and all-around-great-guy Solomon Jones sent out a link to a video from a poignant moment for his family on Election Day: He and his son casting a ballot for Barack Obama. It speaks for itself, making the point that, with one election, so many more dreams feel within reach. I can understand (but not fully feel) why he, and so many of our fellow Americans, are just overwhelmed by the results. It truly was the dawn of a new era, a long-overdue era.
Also, you should buy his books. They're good.
