80. you're absolutely right!
It's such a beautiful picture, and that's why--it doesn't make an idol of Obama, it's all about the people.

I know that reality will intervene sometime after Obama takes the oath of office, and he'll make bad decisions just like any human being would, but right now, after seeing Hillary's wonderful speech and seeing this incredible picture, I have such a good feeling about what our country can become. Of course there'll be the diehard McCain/Republican supporters who won't want to have anything to do with the waitress working two jobs in Ohio or the line worker pulling overtime in Kentucky to pay his family's medical bills, but I really feel like our country is about to become a big tent to anyone who wants us to become a united America again.
