Bountiful Choices: A Beautiful Speech, Two Historic Possibilities

No matter your political affiliation, there's no way, if you have a pulse and a heart, that seeing the Illinois senator officially accept his party's presidential nomination last night in Denver seemed anything other than historic as Barack Obama invoked soaring rhetoric, talked tough and was relentlessly moderate as he reached for the post-partisan political middle.

And, as everyone was basking in the glow of Obama's speech on the 45th anniversary of Martin Luthur King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, GOP presidential nominee Senator John McCain made a first of his own by selecting Sarah Palin, the first-term governor of Alaska a MOTHER of five -- who just gave birth in APRIL to a baby with Down Syndrome -- as his vice presidential nominee.

Either way you slice it, if you pull a Democratic or Republican lever in November, you'll be making history.

What a country.
