We watched the acceptance speeches tonight at Mark & Melissa's place tonight (sister and brother in law).  Barack is a classy, inspiring guy with real depth.

Agi and I marvelled at the contrast between how McCain's and Obama's supporters responded when hearing about their opponent.  It was petty, lame, and unpatriotic when the the Republicans booed Obama.  They were also booing democracy and showed they were poor losers.  I hope the Republicans get their act together--we need a credible opposition party.

One other thought: it was decidedly different when the First Family to be walked out and they were black.  It was just like the Huxtables from the Cosby Show.  I'm proud of Obama, his family and America.
