A More Perfect Union

When I first heard the
anti-American and racially divisive preachings of Barack Obama's pastor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, I thought it could very well be the end of his campaign. It may still be. The clips will continue to get a lot of air time and they are unequivocally disturbing.

Tonight I finally had the time to listen to the speech
Barack gave last week in response to the coverage. The 40 minute speech (embedded above) titled "A More Perfect Union", was thoughtful, eloquent and inspiring. I haven't heard such an honest, substantial and uplifting political speech in quite some time. I've never heard one like it before on the issue of race. As a half black and half white man he seems uniquely positioned to address racial issues in this county and he does so beautifully here.
