In last night's debate John McCain really brought it on everything from earmarks, to Iraq, Iran, Russia, and the United States' responsibility in the world. Obama stood toe to toe with him on every issue, demonstrated his fundamental concern for middle class Americans, and explained why our predominant focus on Iraq is having a detrimental affect elsewhere. He demonstrated a breadth of knowledge and understanding, as did McCain, that has been sorely lacking in the White House for eight years.
The moment regarding two bracelets from mothers expressing different sentiments on Iraq was a powerful, culturally significant moment that really said so much about our divisions as a nation.
Only in America can a candidate like Barack Obama be possible. There was no question last night that Democrats made the right decision in making him our nominee.
