Regardless of where you are on the political spectrum, it is worth noting the historic event taking place this evening. Tonight, forty-five years after Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, Senator Barack Obama will accept the Democratic Party's nomination for President of the United States. This is tremendous progress and something that I think Dr. King would have been proud to see happen. This race is not about race, or at least it should not be and I do not intend to make it, but the event taking place this evening says a lot for America and her ability to change and move forward. I love our country.
Senator McCain too noted the importance of this occasion.
