I'm a political cynic.

My husband will attest to the fact that I regularly say I hate all politicians.

That intense feeling comes with certain credentials, after all - I was myself a politician, albeit a failed one, and I worked in public advocacy for almost two decades.

I am a political cynic.

But, damn, that speech was good. It takes something special, something not political, something, dare I say it, spiritual, to speak that way.

I'm not sure if it was a speech or a sermon or a prayer.

Whatever it was, it was good. May it be so.
