How Does Obama’s 2008 Speech On Race Hold Up Today?

Sam Sanders did a great NPR piece this morning on then Senator Barack Obama’s race speech, which took place 12 years ago today. The radio piece is definitely worth a listen.


I’m going to rewatch the speech today. What a moment that was!

Thank you, Mayor Pete!

pete_buttigieg_logo_newI’m a big fan of Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg. Last night, Pete dropped out of the 2020 race for POTUS, but he has left an indelible mark on the 2020 primary and on the future of the Democratic Party. Bravo, Mayor Pete! Fair winds and following seas ahead!
