Win or lose, I will always respect and appreciate Barack Obama for causing journalists to write sentences like this one: "He electrifies young voters, not because he is young but because he embodies the desire to move to the next chapter of the American story."
Inspiration is an intangible. It's unquantifiable. And it's slicing through our politics right now with the all the force of our dreams of a better tomorrow. Win or lose, I'll never forget Barack Obama's contribution to our American story.
