"18 million cracks."




Oh, Hillary. You made me cry seeing you on that stage in Denver. I got a little verklempt when the camera panned to Bill, who was holding back the tears too. I'm so sorry that it wasn't you accepting your party's nomination. I wanted just one of those 18 million cracks to give way and let you ascend past that last barrier. But I'm with you, girl, and I'm with Obama too. Let's rock this together in November.

See people, it's all about unity. Party unity. Say what you will about Clinton vs. Obama, but in the end it's down to the Barackstar to knock this election out of the park. We've got to stand behind him because, if we learned anything from the last two elections, your vote counts. My vote counts! I can't believe someone would have the audacity to say that they would abstain from voting rather than actively preventing Bush Lite from having a chance at the White House? Ladies, our grandmothers and our great grandmothers didn't sacrifice so much for us to toss our vote away. Let's stand together! And then maybe that glass ceiling will finally crack for our daughters.

We owe it to them.

Ahem. I would like to point out that a *different* glass ceiling has been broken tonight.

Starts a love train for Barack Obama! Come on, ya'll, jump on! Part unity! Barack the vote!

Over here, in Blighty, we wanted Hillary.

We've had Maggie Thatcher, we can kinda take a woman being in charge.
Not a huge deal.

London gets the Olympics in 2012, let's hope you get Hillary then!..

But until then, I'll go with ennuiherself...
"People all over the world, join hands: Let's start a love train....."
