  Memorable lines from DNC's final night   CNN - July 29, 2016

In 2008, I thought that Barack Obama would make a difference, and perhaps in some regard, after eight years, he has. And yet you cannot fight the inevitability of what is to happen continues on to a grand finale. Many people have said Michelle Obama would make a great president, but there are too many obstacles. It's not about race or gender. It's about a bipolar hologram with the aspects of duality grow stronger every day. Whoever gets elected, I wish them good luck because they're going to need it.

In closing ... I want to thank Stephen Colbert for his nightly live reports, making this chapter in US history more meaningful and palatable, while showing us we can laugh in the face of diversity and anything the hologram throws at us.
