President Barack Obama's Charleston eulogy: 'Amazing Grace'
President Barack Obama delivered a touching eulogy, a rousing political speech and a thoughtful meditation on race in America when he traveled to Charleston, South Carolina on Friday to speak at the funeral of the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was gunned down last week by a racist terrorist during Bible study.
But the President's speech will be remembered for a moment at the end when the he launched into a solo of "Amazing Grace," that at first stunned the mourners and then brought them to their feet as they joined him in song.
Unlike past times Obama has confronted an act of violence, he knew the highest profile victim of the Charleston shooting personally. Obama met Pinckney as an early supporter of his 2008 presidential bid.
That personal connection differentiated Friday's eulogy from the funerals Obama keynoted after previous shootings. So, too, did the renewed questions on race spurred by the shooter's apparent motivations.
"None of us can or should expect a transformation in race relations overnight. Every time something like this happens, somebody says, 'We have to have a conversation about race,'" Obama said. "We talk a lot about race. There's no shortcut. We don't need more talk."

Today, New Jersey governor Chris Christie joins 13 other Republican hopefuls: Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum and Donald Trump on the Republican Primary Clown Car. So we now stand at 14 and have yet to hear from Scott Walker from Wisconsin and believe it or not, former Maryland 1 term governor, Bob Ehrlich!! I think, MAYBE, Jesse (the Body) Ventura and Topo Gigio are thinking of running as well! What the heck is going on over on "the Right"? When did they ever have so many fools THINK they have a shot at running the country, and to campaign on a platform of intolerance and division? Wow.
On a serious side? Last week had to be THE banner week for President Obama, his administration, and the country as a whole as the Supreme Court upheld, the Affordable Care Act, declared marriage equality legal in all 50 states, AND had 2 justices declare that the court itself was irrelevant. Odd, huh? PRESBO delivered a moving and inspiring eulogy for the slain "Emmanuel 9", and Sarah Palin's pride and joy, Bristol, got herself "knocked up again".
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
