I admire Glen Beck, however as a scholar of American history, I have to remind Mr. Beck that so-called traditional American values have always been in transition.

The comment(in the article) by Eleanor Holmes Norton, i believe, asks the question that if we didn't have a black prestident, would the rally have occurred. For heaven's sakes, It has NOTHING do do with the fact that Obama is HALF black! It's about his policies and the direction that he is choosing (with the help of both houses of congress)to take our country! He came to office with an agenda that I don't think most americans were aware of-as the polls are showing. The Restoring Honor rally was not about showing up MLK and his dream. It was about reaching for what is GOOD about America and our potential. There is nothing wrong with speaking about God at the rally. The civil right's movement isn't the only part of America who has a right to do that.
