Here's How Minds are Changed

It's all about telling our stories. And sometimes it can be in one sentence.

Thomas Roberts, MSNBC daytime occasional anchor, interviewed the Lt. Gov. of Maryland on proposed marriage equality legislation. The governor say he will sign it.

It was a positive interview, but the end really had the personal hook. Roberts closes by saying how wonderful it will be for him to be able to get married in Maryland.

Congratulations Egypt! Bravo President Obama

What a glorious day for democracy.

This should be President Obama's "tear down this wall" moment. I have heard a reporter on MSNBC say that many of the protesters wanted President Obama to say more, to be more forceful.

This moment belongs to the protesters in Egypt. There can be no doubt of that.

President Obama's mature, measured statements that constantly called for immediate change. What happened behind the scenes we will not know for years to come. But the the public face of this President and his administration throughout this potentially volatile situation have been impeccable. This situation has had no open tone of anti-Americanism, but only of Egyptian patriotism.

Congratulations Egypt! Bravo Mr. President.
