When people asked me "why Obama?" my first answer is always "talent." The man is a supremely gifted speaker. That speech shows it as clear as day. Blew the doors off the place. That speech did everything it need to do. Nailed McCain in half a dozen ways. Rallied Democrats, grabbed independents. Disarmed the GOP talking points. Set out a substantial agenda. Sent the rhetoric soaring. A floor polish and a dessert topping. Oh hell, that speech had Pat Buchanan quoting his favorite parts.
Color me pleased.
