Senator Obama

I just finished hearing Barack Obama give the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention; he's an astounding speaker, as good as Bill Clinton or (the Dark Emperor) Ronald Reagan. Cadence, body language, his transcendant message of hope for all Americans, his passion for the potential of the country. I'm too young to remember the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr, but I imagine the energy and the ringing voice of the pulpit must have sounded much as Obama does.

If he's not elected as the junior Senator from Illinois in November, clearly a fraud will have been perpetrated in the election system. If he doesn't make a run for president in eight years, I'll be quite surprised. Check out the speech.

I agree! Seeing as hgow Mr Ryan's sexual escapades left Coach Ditka as the best idea the reublicans had to run against him, and evan he decided not to, I'd say he's as close to a shoe-in as there is. Not-withstanding floridaesque type shinanigens.

If there will be a black president in my lifetime he probobly has a better chance of winning than anyone else.

He was very impressive Sunday on 60 Minutes. Lord help me, but I think I've found a politician that I want to believe in.

I was very impressed with him last night. I wasn't sure what to expect. Time Magazine boosted him bigtime several weeks back when the decision was made to feature him as keynote speaker but, I thought, I never heard of this guy. Is there any there there? I'm delighted—and impressed—that there is.
