Have I ever felt so inspired by a politician? No, I have not. Obama's "race" speech is the best speech I've heard from a public figure in years. My only fear is that it was too willing to embrace
complex issues in a complex way, that its points can't be boiled down to a simple paragraph. Hopefully people will take some time with it and not just listen to the inevitable ads that say "Barack Hussein Obama refuses to condemn this man:" queue clip of Rev. Wright. No matter what happens in this election, it gives me hope knowing that intelligent rhetoric still has a place in this culture.

Oh, you know it. That speech was the NUTS.
