I try to keep the political blogging restricted to Kate’s Adventures, but this made me so excited, I just had to share it.
First I came across this piece written by Bil Browning on the Bilerico Project, which says that Barack Obama will be announcing Indiana Senator (and former governor) Evan Bayh as his running mate on Wednesday. That, by itself alone, made me squeal with excitement. I am crazy about this election! (And I LOVE that Barack is celebrating his birthday in my beloved Boston tonight!)
And then it got even better. Watch the last sentence in this speech by Evan Bayh:
Together, we can build an America of which we can be proud.
Not an America we can be proud of.
I knew that Bayh was one of the top contenders, but he wasn’t my first choice of a running mate. Watching him say that beautiful sentence made me grin. It’s going to be good.
