The High Road with Sen. Obama

If you haven't watched Obama's "race" speech, you need to. And when you do, I want you to think about the last time you heard a politician speak to you with such candor and conviction. I know, you're a busy person. You have to get the kids fed, the laundry done etc. If you can watch nothing more, watch part three. I think you'll see something new and humble and compelling and hopeful.

Please. Give it a look.

Regardless of your political proclivities, this is one of those moments in our time that you need to witness.

Just found your blog. Very interesting!

And of course, I watched the entire Obama speech, then read the transcript. Fabulous.

Keep up the good posts!

I only saw parts of the speech but did read the entire transcript. That makes me better than many other people.

Jane - thanks for stopping by, I hope we keep hearing from you, particularly since you are the kind of person who actually listens when politicians speak. Good or bad, we need to listen and luckily for us, this time was something special.

Jim - Dude, you were already better than most people well before you read the speech.

I've watched the speech a few times now, and parts of it several times. Haven't had time for transcripts yet(we're smack dab in the middle of Spring Break chaos right now.. yay!) but have every intention of reading.

There was something about the way that man walked off of that stage. Kind of like, "check-mate, bitch".
