Probably for only the second time in nearly two years, as I sit here watching Sen. Obama speaking at a rally in Charlotte, my heart went out to him. It seems his grandmother, his "quiet hero," meant the world to him and I just have to respect that. I truly don't believe those were crocodile tears I saw him wiping away. Instead, I saw this bi-racial little boy, who looks a lot like my own children, hurting deeply. Losing someone you love madly to cancer is something with which I can personally identify. And worse yet, this is the second time for him. I'm hoping all of us not in the Obama camp, will have the decency and dignity not to make light of what is inarguably, a tremendous loss for the candidate - no matter what we think. All politics aside, my heartfelt condolences to the senator, his sister, his wife and their daughters.
