bernie made me proud to be a supporter tonight. he's a class act, and he knows how the process works. he's not going to further his agenda by burning bridges, and he understands that it's better to have allies. i do wish he would've taken time away from his standard stump speech points and spent it more on giving some more heartfelt words to the diehards, though. i wanted him to say, "look, i understand you're upset. believe me, i get it. but please listen to me when i tell you that the only way to make the changes this revolution is wanting is to be in it for the long haul, from the inside. change in our government happens, but it happens very slowly by design, and i need you to be with me on this."
bernie aside, i liked warren's speech -- she had some great moments, but holy shit did cory booker and michelle obama hit it out of the park tonight. cory booker tonight was like barack back in 2004... he was on fire, and he was inspiring. i can't wait to see where he is standing in 4 or 8 years.
