I was TERRIFIED that something bad would happen.
I think more of us were terrified than would like to admit. I kept thinking, "Please don't let Biden become our president in the next five minutes. Can the musicians play a little faster?"
Now THAT is amazing. And, sadly...smart.
I am not sure whether to be stunned/saddened by the necessity of this....or impressed by how she rocks that shit so completely, fake lashes and all.
BOTH, I think!
It sure does. And now I am suddenly very curious about what it is the SS sees.

Yeah, I was in the kitchen putting down my coffee cup and heard come kind of loud noise from the TV, and flinched.

My programs co-chair is a black woman, who taught part of last semesters social justice component. One of the thing she voiced early, was the concern many of us had, that Obama will be shot.
She said, her family, as a black family, decided they weren't going to vote for him, because they would rather have him toiling away doing good work anywhere else, than be in the snipers sights.
From the way she phrased things in the past tense, I believe they worked through it, voted for him, but here again I thought it spoke elequently, realistically; What do you do if "Coming up in the world, as a people" means not voting for your, the best hope, because the "best" thing to do, is to vote in an attempt to save that persons life?
Given the kind of screed we heard about how Dubya was so "courageous" on all sorts of topics, I wonder how this will play out, for someone who is accurately being brave.
