• “We can all move forward together”

    President Obama greets supporters after speaking at Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco

    The President addressed a packed room of supporters in San Francisco last night, and we were delighted to find out that one of our regular commenters here on the blog, Gayle Gonzalez, better known as Meta, was there.

    Reporting back this morning, Meta said:

    One of the things he said that stuck with me was that no matter if your family arrived by Ellis Island, slave ships, or the Rio Grande, we can all move forward by working together on a common purpose. That really struck a chord with me. That we have all come here by different routes and yet we all love our country and can all find a way to bring out the best in each other. President Obama is the quintessential optimist. He believes in all of us.

    This campaign belongs to all of you—take a moment to read Meta’s story from last night here.
