A delight to watch Illinois Congressman Jesse L. Jackson, Jr. on "first night." Shows that the apple falls not far from the tree. Telegenic, he addressed the home audience through the camera while turning to face the Pepsi Center audience front and side to side. The Reverend's son evoked his daddy's brilliant oratorical skills with gems such as, "the well-being of the we depends on the well-being of the he and the well-being of the she." And, "America is not perfect but it can be perfected." To this day, I'd like nothing better than to meet his father, the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson. Congressman Jackson, additionally, mentioned Lyndon B. Johnson's signing of the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act of the mid-1960s. Too many liberal Democrats fail to recognize LBJ's successful efforts to bring about equality for African-Americans. John F. Kennedy introduced Civil Rights legislation during his presidency but the bills remained stalled in Congress. As LBJ would later observe, "I'm the one who got the bills passed."
