Just landed in Jo'burg. Plane full of journos, + Pres. Carter & Kofi Annan. Real sense of moment & event on flight. #Mandela
Flying over Soweto's Soccer City, where the memorial will be held Tues. Last in saw Mandela was there at World Cup final '10
En route to South Africa, reminded of a favourite Mandela quote: "Any man or institution that tries to rob me of my dignity will lose."
The U.S. economy is up 2.1 Million jobs this year and 2013 is likely to be the best year for hiring since 2005
South Africa struggles as an economy, yet is a beacon of freedom, a land of hope & promise. It reminds me a lot of America.
