George Wallace’s daughter ponders how he might have felt about the election of Barack Obama. A blogger at TalkingPointsMemo.com ponders what this election might mean for the future of both the Republican and Democratic party. Particularly worth noting is the section on The Joshua Generation. Obama’s speech about The Joshua Generation referenced above, delivered at the Selma Voting Rights March Commemoration in March, 2007.. I think it’s good enough to get it’s own citation here. Wil Wheaton nails it. Right on the head. More or less what people like myself and kitanzi were trying to say in our posts on Wednesday, only better. A lovely poem by Suzette Haden Elgin.
