Transcript of Obama speech

I watched the speech. I have to admit, the guy can talk a good game. He's insightful, intelligent, articulate, and charismatic. Several lines in the speech could really become part of the "great American quote book," notably:

But I have asserted a firm conviction -- a conviction rooted in my faith in God and my faith in the American people -- that working together we can move beyond some of our old racial wounds, and that in fact we have no choice is we are to continue on the path of a more perfect union

I'm becoming more and more convinced that Obama will be a good candidate in November. A damned good candidate. And I think this speech will help to convince a lot of other people of the same thing.
