Last night while The Democrats Present: Hell in a Cell 45, Socialists Take All was airing on CBS, I was perusing Getty images, as one is wont to do. I stumbled upon a photo, not of a moment in time so much as of an energy. This photo of Senator Amy Klobuchar is a timeless piece of history that encapsulates a feeling so universal, so hard to describe. Check it out.
