On a Horizontal Hourglass

Jesse Jackson said something nice, well, when talking about Terri Schiavo:
"This is a global issue, and oftentimes the big issues of life are reduced to a single person who brings clarity," he said. "Conservatives and liberals can find common ground. It's a transcendent moment and a transcendent opportunity."
I like how he moves from the big issue to the single person and quickly broadens things again by talking about conservatives and liberals getting together to create something "transcendent." Very Lincoln-like.
