Jim Leach at DNC

You may not know who Jim Leach is, but you should. He was my representative in the US House until he lost to Dave Lobesack in 2006. He was one the last of the 'moderate Republicans' in Congress, who lost largely because Democrats in his district wanted to move the raw number of Democrats in the house, not because he'd done anything bad.

He is not a riveting speaker, unless you actually listen to what he says. But this speech is the most substantive, clear speech about why Republicans should support Obama. It is a model of articulate, persuasive rhetoric.
