August 27, 2008 will go down as perhaps the happiest day, so far, in my political life. Barack Obama is now, officially, the nominee for the Democratic Party.
A huge thanks to Senator Hillary Clinton, who called for his nomination by acclamation. Senator Clinton, I will work my fingers to the bone for you in 2016. You have rocked this convention, and I am deeply grateful.
Now, we need to work. Work like we’ve never worked before.
But just for a moment, let’s let it wonderously sink in. Wonderously. Happily. Joyfully. Tearfully. Sink in.
