Now that the Dems Have A Nominee......

I was thinking about writing a post to attempt to convey to you how I'm feeling now that the Democratic primary race has finally come to a conclusion and Hillary Clinton has graciously offered her support to Barack Obama.

I thought I'd wait and let you read what I consider to be a post that reflects many of my own feelings, even if I didn't start out as a Hillary-supporter. Tom Watson is a Clinton supporter who's leading his fellow Democrats to become unified and ready to win in November. In his post, I think he shows wisdom, passion for change, deep respect for all candidates, and strength of character. We should all aspire to be as generous in spirit and committed to win. Read what he has to say:

"Speaking Loudly With a Single Voice"

In Remembrance of Bobby Kennedy

Twenty years after his death, Bobby Kennedy's wife tells NBC's Tom Brokaw that not only was she in love with Bobby, but that she was in awe of him.

It's hard to believe that it's now been 40 years since we lost Bobby.
