Let America be America again

I was reading a story about a recent Kerry stump speech, and it referred to this as Kerry’s Langston Hughes line “I’m running for President because, abroad as well as at home, it’s time to let America be America again. By doing so, we can restore our place in the world and make America safer.”

The story then included a link to Hughes’ poem:

I nominate Jesse Jackson to read this poem from the podium at the Democratic convention this summer, do I have a second to that nomination?
