I felt that the Iowa mom nailed the issue of Obama standing up to the whacko and reckless Tea Partiers. When Obama was elected, I was moved to the point of tears (during the inauguration, specifically — see video below) and I’m disappointed in a lot of what’s happened, but think back to the president we had before this one!
I had to turn volume way up on this clip.
It’s such a beautiful duet, with Bettye LaVette and Jon Bon Jovi. They way Jon (I never knew he could sing like this!) sings “…but I know-o-ee-o-o, change gonna come…” and Bettye loves it and reaches for his arm.
