Living In Perfect Harmony...
"Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord, why dont we?
We all know that people are the same where ever we go
There is good and bad in everyone,
We learn to live, we learn to give
Each other what we need to survive together alive.
Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord why dont we?"
- Lyrics by Sir Paul McCartney
Tonight, Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton engaged in the debate the Democratic voters have been waiting for: engaging, intense, substantive and congenial. Both candidates focused on the various issues many voters have been clamoring about: Health Care, Economic Justice, Iraq, Immigration and more. They avoided the personal slights, even when they were drawing comparisons; it was diplomatic and respectful. They both received numerous applause and ovations from the star studded audience in La La Land.
In the spirit of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, I dedicate to you Paul McCartney's & Stevie Wonder's magnum opus "Ebony & Ivory".
Have a good night!
