You had me at Enough

I decided I could not miss a historic moment like watching the first African-American presidential nominee give an acceptance speech. He said everything I've wanted Democrats to say for years. He hit some key issues head on that previous candidates have pussyfooted around--oil, abortion, gay marriage. He pointed out that Republicans have basically been trying versions of the same policies over and over again and they're not working. I thought his line about "policies of past vs. policies of the future" was really more "okay, old white dudes, you've had your turn; now get out of the way." I think I'm ready to put my bumper sticker on the car and start handing out some literature. If we don't win this thing, I'm moving to France.
