Clinton Gives Props To Bruce Reed

On his Facebook wall, opinionator Kevin Richert of the Idaho Statesman mentions the props that former President Bill Clinton game former Coeur d'Alene High grad Bruce Reed for his input into the speech that wowed the Demcractic National Convention:

He didn't mention Idaho by state, but former President Bill Clinton said a former Idahoan had a hand in crafting his speech before the Democratic National Convention. The Idahoan in question: Bruce Reed, chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden and the son of former state Sen. Mary Lou Reed of Coeur d'Alene. Clinton discussed the speech Thursday on Comedy Central's “The Daily Show.” The mention of Reed starts about one minute in, and goes to about the 1:30 mark. Video here.

Obama: Quit Pointing Fingers

“But what we can't do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another.  As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility.  Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together”— President Barack Obama//Now Public.

Question: Were you inspired by President Obama's speech last night in Tucson?
