My favorite Photo from Politics, 2008

The shadow has discussed with some friends the scene of  Jesse Jackson crying on Election night in Grant Park in Chicago.   My more cynical friend said that Jackson was crying because he was losing to stature to the next generation.   The Shadow who has taken the cynical view in some recent posts disagrees with their friend’s point of view.  I think that Jesse Jackson was crying tears of joy in celebration of what he has struggled to achieve all of his life.   I don’t think I can understate what an important moment in history Barack Obama’s election was to the country and how poignant it was to see Reverend Jackson on Election night.  — The OC Shadow —
