obama!

... so this is what they mean by "rising star."

Walking out of the gym I caught his keynote [txt] which was fantastic. Not so worried about the 22nd amendment anymore. Several other people kept stopping to watch.

update (thx, joe!): video of the speech is available from C-SPAN [site, realvideo]

I was stuck on the cardio machines for an extra fifteen minutes to catch Dean's speech [txt]. 1 Working to make america better in mysterious ways, I guess.

(1)which came after CNN ignored Gephardt and Daschle to talk to Richardson and pundited about Dean's loss being due to being "too liberal". Did they ever look at his platform? I think it was party politics, not liberal-moderate at play, but that's why they don't pay me the big money.

Obama is the first black president!

Re: 2012

Ok I just watched his speech again on cspan and I think it's the best political speech I've heard since I Have A Dream. Definitely the best evocation of God in a political speech in many years. I liked the way his whole speech had an arc to it, unlike Dean's way of coming out the gates swinging. And the blue/red states part was great. I'm really psyched about this guy.

a.k.a., the "hillary's pissed!" theory. who knows? maybe the oratorical madness of Alan Keyes will stop this movement in it's tracks!

what a dick

Shorter Keyes: running for Senate in a state you don't live is a "destruction of federalism," except when I do it.

Re: 2012

Also, no amount of push-polling in the world could possibly stop the Obama/Clinton or Clinton/Obama tickets!
Gephardt and Daschle said nothing anyway. They looked like 10th graders compared to Clinton's phd speech giving abilities.
I just liked the part where the panel was discussing the absence of network coverage (and how this is a bad thing) while cutting away from actual speeches from top-ranking congressional democrats.

I guess that's what they get for being boring, bad, irrelevant speakers.
