But I'm not spreading this virus for the politics, but the the first blush of the deeper promise of the Obama candidacy. I'm talking about what I heard Michelle Obama call "the change within us." Some months ago a called this thing "The Revival," and you can see a half dozen posts in this vein here, or on the category link below.
(Big my bad: Somehow the three pages under "Why We Are Here"— The Revival, The Mission, The Vision—have disappeared. I'll take that to mean the pages got on the Enemy's radar; they will be restored soon!)
Do check this touching video for a taste of what might result when Obama's call for renewal beyond petty politics of self-interest and division—especially race identity politics—falls open minds and hearts.
Check especially from 3:51 to 4:42. A Latina student talks about banning the insidious 'N' word from use in her presence. Dude!
