Holy crikey Batman. Barack Obama at the DBC tonight gave one of the most brilliant political speeches I remember ever watching, and the guy has charisma and delivery up the yin-yang. Good thing Clinton went last night, because he never would have been able to top Obama tonight, and that's saying something. This guy just sealed his fate as a future leader of the democratic party, and he hasn't even been elected to the Senate yet. He had Hillary smiling and standing and clapping, not even realizing that he's going to pass her by sometime in the next 6-10 years. He just gave a political speech that really was all about unity and togetherness and one country and hope. I almost want to pick-up and move to Illinois right now so I can vote for him, and he doesn't even have an opponent!
Seriously, I'm almost shivering. And I feel really bad for Ron Reagan Jr. who's got to follow what will undoubtedly be the most impressive performance at either convention this year.
In fact, if John Edwards and Hillary are thinking ahead, they better be buddying up to Obama right now, because they're going to want him on their tickets come 2012!
