Tom Brokaw and Colin Powell were on Morning Joe yesterday, and all were waxing poetic (and getting all teary-eyed, too) about the upcoming inauguration. Here's a portion of what Brokaw had to say:
BROKAW: He is comfortable in his own skin, to use that phrase, he had the self-confidence. It was not overbearing and could laugh at himself easily. They could hammer him and be critical of a quote. At one point he burst out laughing, I was in the middle of reading back one of these things. "Some people said nice things about me as well."
Listen, I just want to say one thing. Having been in the South in the '60s and Los Angeles, in Watts and northern urban areas, when we were evolving as a country, I'm thinking of all the bigots and rednecks and all the people I met along the way. I'm saying to them, "Take this." You know?
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I like that thought. I think you might be right.
