Did you hear Barney Smith?
This is what is all about. We need a government that thinks of working people.
We need an America that is for Barney Smith not just Smith Barney.
I went to Lincoln Elementary School, Lincoln Junior High, and for one semester to Lincoln High School in Warren, Michigan. Our mascot? The "Abes." From the time I was in kindergarten, I loved what Abraham Lincoln stood for-freeing the slaves and saving the union. I loved the Gettysburg address. By third grade, I was ready to ask what I could do my for my country--thrilling at the speeches of President Kennedy.
It wasn't until I heard Barack Obama's 2004 at the Democratic Convention that I was that inspired again.
Tonight, is a big night for America.
Tonight is a big night for the Barney Smiths of America.
