by Rachel Dykoski, 6/4/08 • Fourteen hours have passed since I struggled home from the most amazing rally. After hearing Sen. Barack Obama at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul last night, my heart is still full of hope.
So many of us are committed to the ideals of the Democratic party. Every vote must count because everybody matters, and hearing his speech yesterday made me believe it. "We are the future we've been waiting for," is not some blithe accolade or turn of phrase. It's an axiom for a movement - a green wave of opportunity in which we all can play a role.
