The Thing I Think I'll Remember...

...is the image of Jesse Jackson crying. Of all the things, I can't imagine, it'd be having to wait this long, to fight that much to get to see a moment like this.

One less dream deferred. One less dream denied.

I don't know what else I could say about this moment and this victory, so I'll hush and enjoy history as it happens.

Here's looking forward to a better, brighter future!

Jesse Jackson crying... and Oprah, looking like someone stuck in a mosh pit.

That was our Kennedy moment. Yes, we can.

I was surprised they even let Jesse into the event but I agree that his tears were a testament to what a long road this has been. It's a brand new day.
