Kennedy's Letter To The President Dear Mr. President, I wanted to write a few final words to you to express my gratitude for your repeated personal kindnesses to me - and one last time, to salute your leadership in giving our country back its future and its truth. On a personal level, you and Michelle reached out to Vicki, to our family and me in so many different ways. You helped to make these difficult months a happy time in my life. You also made it a time of hope for me and for our country. When I thought of all the years, all the battles, and all the memories of my long public life, I felt confident in these closing days that while I will not be there when it happens, you will be the President who at long last signs into law the health care reform that is the great unfinished business of our society. There will be struggles - there always have been - and they are already underway again. At the Denver Convention where you were nominated, I said the dream lives on. With deep respect and abiding affection, TheAtlantic.com

The Story of Stuff Project In 2012, Will Republicans Turn From Id to Ego? - Politics - The The Republican Party is enjoying its "id" moment right now. In the schema of Sigmund Freud, the id is that part of your psychology that spontaneously reacts and craves emotional and physical fulfillment. Voters want candidates who make them feel good, who make them feel special, who convince them that simply the conscious act of identifying as a conservative is political and powerful. The Tea Party is an identity movement. Sarah Palin's new conservative feminism is very much an identity movement. Cheering for Sarah Palin makes you feel good about yourself and makes you hate the enemy all that much more. The trouble is that enough Republican primary voters will be looking for something more. But Iowa is a peculiar state. And they expect something more from their candidates than intoxicating Republican chauvinism, too. In a furious effort to catch up, Gov. Two candidates, Mitch Daniels and Mitt Romney, won't play the game at all. Eventually, the ego will triumph over the id.

Mozilla Firefox Full text of President Obama's speech to the University of Michigan's Class of 2010 By Daily Staff On May 1st, 2010 Below is the full text of President Barack Obama's address at the 2010 University of Michigan spring commencement. THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you very much. AUDIENCE MEMBER: We love you! THE PRESIDENT: I love you back. It is great to be here in the Big House -- (applause) -- and so may I say, “Go Blue!” Good afternoon, President Coleman, the Board of Trustees, to faculty, parents, family and friends of the class of 2010. It is a privilege to be with you on this happy occasion, and, you know, it’s nice to spend a little time outside of Washington. Some of these letters tell stories of heartache and struggle. Now, the teacher of this class instructed the students to ask me any question they wanted. But it was the last question from the last student in the letter that gave me pause. I really enjoyed Alex’s remarks because that's a lot of change.

Hillary Clinton 1969 | Hillary Clinton: LIFE Magazine Photos, 1969 Long before Yale Law, before Arkansas, before marriage to Bill, the Senate, the White House, her own (first?) run for the White House, the State Department and the ubiquitous “texts from” meme that just keeps on giving, she was Hillary Diane Rodham, the older sister of two brothers and the over-achieving daughter of loving, politically conservative parents from suburban Park Ridge, Illinois. Intelligent, intensely curious and, from a young age, driven to find a way to somehow contribute to the world around her, Hillary Rodham enrolled at Wellesley College in the fall of 1965. It was there, in Massachusetts, that the moderate Republican underwent her transformation (she might characterize it as “an evolution”) to committed Democrat. [See all of TIME.com's coverage of Hillary Clinton.] Here, the pictures suggest, is a self-possessed young woman coming fully into her own. “She’s also quite concerned” the note continues, “that it be made clear she was not attacking Senator Brooke personally.”
