History in the making

Sometimes amid all the political blather, you may witness a moment of truth and courage on live TV that you know will be repeated and discussed ad infinitum. A true moment in history and it is a thrill to see/hear it as it happens.

Ronald Reagan in Berlin calling for the tearing down of the wall.
Candy Crowley correcting Mitt Romney about Benghazi during the second debate.
President Obama talking to the parents and the nation about the violence at Sandy Hook.
Colin Powell on Meet the Press calling out the racism of the GOP.

At the opposite end of the scale, anything from Donald Trump or Sarah Palin, and the incoherent attempt yesterday by Ben Stein to defend the GOP on FOX’s Greta Van Susteren.
