Picking Up the Torch

I went to an Obama whistle stop event today, and I knew I'd felt something that stirred in me some feelings I'd plumb forgotten about for a long time-and it's been a long time since we had one such as he is.
I guess it's about steadfastness and maybe a matter of conviction and plain speaking and being the man of the hour in an important time in our history as a people. I think it's also the place for midwestern practicality and plain speaking. Although Mr. Obama is an adopted midwesterner, as I am, he has filled the role quite well.
