I thought I'd email you the exchange between myself and my mother, a one-time strong Hillary supporter that crossed over after hearing Obama speak in our hometown of New Orleans, reacting to the Obama speech today:
Mom: I heard the Obama speech today. It was brave.
Me: With each crisis/charade or what have you, even when I find myself surprised that I would stop to question my support for him, he soars and ends up strengthening my reasons for supporting him in the first place. Yes, he is brave, he is real, and he has principles that have remained intact despite it all. The simple fact is that the entire campaign is now if Obama can survive the gauntlet and nothing else. He seems to be doing just that.
As this campaign progresses, this man grows and grows. The same cannot be said for his two remaining opponents.
