America rocked the house

In addressing America tonight via the Democratic Convention, Barack Obama said this election isn’t about him. “It’s about you,” he said. About the American people.

And he’s right.

Barack Obama, as inspiring, as gifted, as talented and intelligent as he is — he didn’t put himself at this center of this momentous occasion, at this momentous time for our country. Americans did. Americans put him there and he’s humble and gracious enough to know that.

As proud as I am — as thrilled and hopeful as I am — to have Obama as my candidate … as my next President of the United States … I’m even more proud to have — as fellow Americans — the people who put him at that podium tonight.

America, you rocked the house, and I couldn’t be more proud to be counted among you.
