Tonight will obviously be an emotional moment for millions of Americans as Barack Obama the first African American to be nominated by a major political party accepts the nomination of the Democratic Party. We\’ll all see that the American creed of equality and the opportunity of any American to aspire to his or hers dreams can come true. America is at a pivotal moment in which we are involved in two wars, health care means bankruptcy for many, energy costs have had families for the first time decide between spending for food and gas, and we have seen town after town and community after community affected by factories closing and millions of manufacturing jobs shipped overseas. This is a moment when we need to stand up and demand change and elect Sen. Barack Obama…

Last night former President Bill Clinton gave a great speech and hit all the right points to elect Obama. I just hope President Clinton gets out on the campaign trail with his wife Sen Hillary Clinton and continues to support Obama till the election.Sen John Kerry I thought gave an excellent speech and really hit home what the last eight years under President Bush have really been like for America. Vice- President nominee Sen Joe Biden really hit a homerun and showed why Obama picked him to be his running mate. So, it should be a really exciting and emotional night as we look back on this date 45 years ago at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr\’s Speech \” I Have A Dream\” and realize the dream is making history tonight…
