If you only watch one political speech this year ...

This is the sort of speech I've been waiting for from Obama. It isn't just his stump speech, it's not vague or feel good, it's just the best sort of political speech there is: deeply felt, plain spoken, and honest.

Clinton tries to say that Obama is just a guy with a gift for public speaking. Let's turn that around: We need political leaders who can say the things that need saying. We need someone who can think deeply, judge carefully, and explain it eloquently.
