You can only lie next to someone while they sleep and watch their eyelids flutter and their chest slowly rise and fall so many times before your heart has something to say about it.

This is why you should do what I do: say “Goodnight!” loudly, roll over to face the other way, no cuddling. Problem solved.

Ten years ago today, this guy gave the Keynote Address at the Democratic Party Convention that put John Kerry’s name into nomination as President.
There was, he explained, no “liberal” America and no “conservative” America; there was “only the United States of America.”
Four years later, he was elected President of the United States. My guess is he has rethought the “red” and “blue” claim more than once since. But it was a hell of a line. Watch it here: http://youtu.be/eWynt87PaJ0?t=13m

My mom was in Chicago that summer, and she saw all the campaign signs and advertisements for Barack Obama’s Senate race. She watched the speech on TV — I wasn’t old enough to care about politics by that point (though by the end of the election I was paying attention to the political debate religiously) — and came home and said, “Ryan, that man is going to be President of the United States one day.” My mom has about as much political acumen as my puppy, but look at that, she was right.
