When Star Jones was asked how she felt about being surrounded by celebrities last night at Grant Park, she said:
"there was only really one star tonight, and his name was barack obama. we all stood out in a field. we all stood together. there were no vip sections, it was really about barack obama representing the united states of america."
I couldn't agree with her more. For once, there was no line that separated the rich from the poor, the celebrity from the average joe, the black from the white. For once, it seemed as though the democratic America put it's pride down and joined in the hope and celebration for the change that we wished to see, and the change that we saw happen. Simply amazing.
