Best speech I've heard in a long time

January 4, 2008

I honestly cannot recall ever being so moved by a speech given by a politician as I was watching Barack Obama's Iowa victory speech on YouTube. The speaking abilities of Barack Obama and George W. Bush are completely on opposite ends of the scale. Tell me honestly, can you imagine Hillary, or any other candidate for that matter, giving such an eloquent address?

The Digg comments say a lot about how people have been affected by this particular oration. I suggest you read them.

No president I can remember has given a speech this passionate and motivating, certainly no one with the last name Reagan, Bush, or Clinton...and Willy had some serious charisma!

No matter you political leanings, you gotta give da'bama some credit for a killer speech.
