Obama's Speech, The Right Stuff

I just watched Barack Obama’s speech in Philadelphia that was touted to be a major speech. It was. He addressed every one of the criticisms that have been leveled against him the past few weeks, from the remarks of his preacher to the attacks by Clinton and McCain.

The real strength of the speech was his demeanor and candor. He showed why he would be a great president even under fire. Attacks from Hillary and McCain would have out another candidate into a high energy retaliation mode, but Obama was cool and collected and sounded about as honest as I could have ever expected from a politician.

I know the critics will be dissecting this speech for a while, but taken as a whole it showed the kind of stuff he was made of, and it is the right stuff for America.
