In Barack Obama's DNC speech was a beautiful idea, and a quintessentially American one. What are we -- as a country -- if not the sum total of our strange and wonderful families?

Obama's movement is about us, and what we can do to shake things up. That's why older people who've held their spot forever -- the John McCains and Jesse Jacksons of this world -- find him a threat.

Obama's strategy this past month is a variant of the "rope-a-dope" strategy in boxing, where you let the opponent throw his best punches, exhaust himself on the offensive, and then unleash a barrage of your own.

'America, We Cannot Turn Back. Not with So Much Work to Be Done.'
