Regarding the Jan. 28 news article “Former foes Obama and Clinton are best buds in prime time”:

I could not have been the only person with tears flowing as I watched our cautious and compassionate president, who happens to be an African American man, comfortably and affectionately sharing the limelight with our extraordinary secretary of state, who happens to be a lovely white woman. Forty years ago, not in my wildest dreams would either of these people be what they are now.
