Obama and RFK or Two Trains, then and now

Andrew Sullivan has a great post comparing the train that is taking Obama to Washington with the funeral train of RFK.  One was a train about endings, while another is a train about beginnings.

Paul Simon has a line that goes: “Everybody loves the sound of a train in the distance”, for it conjures up positive thoughts and emotions. Like Hope. Everybody loves the sound of the train that Obama is on, both real and symbolic.

Go see “The Hope They Saw On That Train”.
