Barack Obama was not my first choice for President, Dennis Kucinich was. I did not vote for Obama, I voted for Ralph Nader. That being said, watching the throng in Grant Park awaiting the Obama victory speech brought tears to my eyes.

It was as if that Chicago song many years ago, "Saturday in the Park", had finally come true:

Saturday in the park
I think it was the fourth of july
Saturday in the park
I think it was the fourth of july
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing italian songs
(fake italian lyric)
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And Ive been waiting such a long time
For saturday

Saturday in the park
Youd think it was the fourth of july
Saturday in the park
Youd think it was the fourth of july
People talking, really smiling
A man playing guitar
Singing for us all
Will you help him change the world
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And Ive been waiting such a long time
For today

Slow motion riders fly the colors of the day
A bronze man still can tell stories his own way
Listen children all is not lost
All is not lost

Funny days in the park
Every days the fourth of july
Funny days in the park
Every days the fourth of july
People reaching, people touching
A real celebration
Waiting for us all
If we want it, really want it
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And Ive been waiting such a long time
For the day

Truly, Rosa sat, so that Martin would walk, so that Barack would run and win, so that all of America can fly! What a time to be alive in the U.S. A.

Ralph Nader, eh? Well, you do what you have to do. But your joy in the social significance of Obama's delicious win is gracious. I think he will prove his worthiness and it is my deep and abiding hope that those who did not vote for him will come to appreciate him in ways never anticipated. Ditto for those who did vote for him. That would be me. And David.
