espite anchor abuse of "Breaking News," "exclusive report" and WWII vision-entrenched Senators John McCain & Lindsay Graham; despite transforming political straw Pauls into a Romney good ol' money bags club where Koch heads genuflect before The Bronze Bull; despite Citizens United Supreme electoral transformation, non-voters and Americans too self-absorbed with hand held devices to avoid light poles, manholes and train tracks long enough to notice P3s tax bankruptcy connection -- transforming from white to black or Bruce to Caitlyn, and we're all atwitter.

Though not transformed by Labor Leadership chest pounding over small temporary House TPP procedural vote, nor the male challenging by my favorite House grandmother, still for one brief, shining moment, when hope nourishes, as it is nourished, each victory will help us, some other to win.

On either side of Fast Track argument and both sides of TPP Party isle, few know enough to practice necessity for making choices as global citizens, without sacrificing Americans on the world stage. Hope is seeing a person, as both his friends and enemies see him.

Hope is a multi-racial Constitutional Attorney with community organizer experience being overwhelmingly elected president. However, it's not hero worship, assigning divine powers to Reagan or a candidate's smile that beckons us to the future, but rather hope for the all Americans to embrace the privilege of automatic voter registration.

When during the slowest recovery in history from the worst recession in history, a black looking president is re-elected, that's Main Street hopes trumping Wall Street billions.

Proportionately, when Congressional gridlocking gerrymandering and non-confirmations are set aside temporarily to embrace African-American president in favor of a mostly top secret international trade deal, America's best hope demands we judge the motivations of the strange bedfellows keeping company behind closed doors.

Hope inspires: The number of Americans duped by the derisive Right are flushing Rush-like hate down the slippery slope realizing a house divided against itself doesn't stand a snowball's chance in Congress to intelligently solve 21st century challenges.

Hope is discovering the balance between transporting toxic fossil fuels through pipelines and over rails, by transforming American overconsumption of oil, gas and nuclear energy, into a nation basking in the renewable freedom of each sunrise, gentle breeze and Coal Ash free shower.

Although aspirin kneecapped Conservatives Duggared by the hypocrisy of politically inconvenient family values and other non-patriot acts, still deny reality of forever digital video, those dishonoring Law Enforcement Oath of Honor to protect and serve, star in street video as violent antagonists for those smart enough to tap Smart Phone and aim like Michael Slager's weapon -- our response, though Wall Street, Madison Ave and Cable TV consumer dollar motivated, is finally veering toward All Lives Matter, hopefully.

Hope is what drills out the Truth Decay of Citizens United, giving hands up for families like those of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, John Crawford III, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray and all law abiding police.

Hope transforms us:

Second University of Virginia student accosted by Virginia ABC armed force; like Elizabeth Daly in 2013, all charges dropped against Martese Johnson; Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe's appointed panel considers lack of need for an alcohol SS
