The Speech

My sympathies for Senator Obama over Clinton notwithstanding, it is not an exaggeration to say that he delivered a wonderful speech on Tuesday about race in America, probably the best in the last generation. It is impressive not only in its scope, and seeming honesty (if one believes a politician can actually be honest anymore), but also in his ability to confront the issue of racism within his own family, challenging us to do the same in ourselves and to use it as a building block for a better polity.

On the off chance anyone missed it, without further ado.
