President Obama has concluded his typically inspirational speech at the Democratic National Convention — though perhaps not as fiery as former President Bill Clinton’s presentation of the facts on where this nation stands from the night before — and we now come to the end of the two major parties’ conventions.
What’s left now is about 60 days of intense campaigning and debates. The choices are as clear as they could be. The last big push in this overly long marathon is now under way.
So, where do we go from here? Do we do what’s best for America as a whole and put aside partisan politics? Or do we continue treading water, slowly sinking?
We need to keep in mind what this nation was built upon. We need to follow the example of someone who suddenly had their life change in a life-threatening fashion in the blink of an eye, putting that right hand over the heart, and reciting with a smile the words that should make us all proud regardless of party. For the good of the people … all people.
