It's hard to imagine any of the other candidates making their first act 
as leader of any political party a speech at the rally to support refugees.

and putting "artist" at the top of the list of aspirations that all 
parents might have for their children.

Regardless of what happens next, it is enormously heartening and 
empowering to once again hear a political leader in this country, assert 
that we are all hurt and degraded by the oppression of others.
