Last night’s speech changed this election season for us, andÂ I think it did for a lot of others too.
I have been most interested in a regime change, a sea change in how business is done in the White House, and I think either democratic candidate could bring that. However, I have never been given so much credit for intelligence and understanding of subtlety by a politicianÂ in my adult life.
We threw $100 down on the table and committed ourselves to a campaign.
What I was struck by most? Words matter.
Words matter, words matter, words matter. Speeches should be pretty. I want my politicians to be brilliant orators and to bring passion and depth to ideas.Â I want speeches that unite, clarify, bring momentum – there’s been such a dearth of this in the last eight years.
If you haven’t read the speech – find it and do so. I fought tears a couple of times.
Other than that I’m home w/ a sore throat finishing the last of this novel, which is headed out today!
