Obama at his finest
By Michael J.W. Stickings
This was the best speech I've heard Barack Obama give as president -- possibly the best since January of 2008. Unlike his inaugural address, or even his convention speech, this one really soared and inspired by the end.
I second that -- despite some mild objections to some of the content.
(Well, not quite. I wouldn't go back as far as January 2008. His speech on race was pretty impressive, after all, as were some of his primary-night victory speeches, as was his election-night victory speech, though that had a lot to do with the magnitude of the moment.)
