Barack Obama reaches delegate threshhold for Democratic nomination

Obama speaks at Georgia Tech, April 2007

This is our moment; this is our time.

–Barack Obama, 6/3/08

I’m excited. His victory speech was very moving and very gracious. Can’t say so much for Hillary Clinton’s speech, which all but sealed my suspicions of her narcissistic personality disorder.

But back to Obama…I’m pretty sure that this is the first time that any speech, let alone a politician’s speech, has nearly moved me to tears. Or maybe I was just so happy to be able to open my bottle of champagne, which was waiting for him to acknowledge his victory.

So yeah…on to Denver, and then…the White House!
