I've read a looooot of editorials- especially lately.
And this is one is one of the most beautifully poetic pieces I have discovered.
This quotation by Eugene Jarecki gives you a taste...
"Though today is yet unknowable, let us for a moment imagine that when we wake tomorrow it will be a new day in America. Let us appreciate the poetry that once upon a time, a one-term congressman from Illinois became President of the United States and freed four million African slaves and, 145 years later, an African American first-term senator from Illinois - borne not of the rapacious legacy of that compulsory migration but rather of a voluntary choice by two adults - should become President of that same land."
Here's the whole dish!
