democratic festivities........

we watched the democratic nomination ceremony last night.  
i like obama, but not as much as the person i want to write in on the ballot................al gore!
wow Al, that was the best political speech i have ever heard.  obama is a good speaker too, but al gore knocked it out of the park!



i wonder how long he practiced that speech, it was flawless and powerful and infused me with political excitement which i haven't felt since the vietnam times.

so why didn't al gore make such a passionate speech when he was running for office?  maybe he was tired from all his campaigning, perhaps he has become more polished, perhaps i wasn't really listening.
or is it that now really is the time, the changing of the tides, the necessary movement our government needs to act on , NOW!   or our country and our planet, has learned to face the inconvenient truths.......
i never realized until last night just how intelligent and cool al gore really is....
i believe obama too, i really think he is a people's person.  
now let's see what the republicans have to say.

Lisa I am scared...I really don't feel great abut either party this round. I want Bill and his charisma back! OH hey and I reread in an old mag your cousin is"JIM DINE"???? Omg I love his work,I have his books! I've seen his work in DC museums,etc...why did I forget that? You will love my international collage exchange pieces I am doing this year. The idea came to me in Johns Hopkins School of Health where I cater lunches to. They have Dines and Rauschenburgs on their main floor,I always stop to ponder as long as I can.
