Some people have inspired whole countries to great deeds because of the power of their vision: That everyone’s decent underneath and would get along fine if only they made the effort. It burns like a flame, a dream we’re all part of that shapes the world. It’s a kind of magic.

Some people have inspired whole countries to great deeds because of the power of their vision. And so could he. Not because he dreams about marching hordes, or world domination, or an empire of a thousand years. Just because he thinks that everyone’s really decent underneath and would get along just fine if only they made the effort, and he believes that so strongly it burns like a flame which is bigger than he is. He’s got a dream and we’re all part of it, so that it shapes the world around him. And the weird thing is that no one wants to disappoint him… It’s a kind of magic.

I don't know why this didn't go viral. It fucking blew my mind when he said on that television. It still does. It should be everywhere. "It's not about caring." That is the quintessential Republican statement.

Lindsey Graham last fall on the CNN debate outright saying that healthcare "is not about caring." THAT is the Republican view of healthcare.

You can see the look on his face that he knows its wrong.
