Let’s take a little trip back in time…  I recognize many of my readers were not even alive back then, but… let’s try.

Noted in passing from The Politico; “I give all praise and honor to God,” Obama began. “Look at the day the Lord has made.”… “We need a leader who’s going to touch our souls. Who’s going to make us feel differently about one another. Who’s going to remind us that we are one another’s keepers. […]
