Nice post by Rob at Intrepid Liberal: Russ Feingold's Democratic nomination acceptance speech in a better world:
Good evening, I love New York! Applause. Smiles broadly and waits for silence. And I proudly accept your nomination for President of the United States. Crowd erupts with sustained applause and cheers.
My friends, the time has come for an American renaissance of community, values, and justice. Almost seven years ago in this great city Osama Bin Laden unleashed his terror and the Republican Party unleashed a reign of indecency. Tonight we begin anew in the very city where it all went wrong. We bring hope.
Just bask in it a little, like watching The West Wing, to remember what sanity and hope felt like. Then get back to work making it come true. The 2008 primaries aren't two years away; they're now, and the clock is ticking.
