What I've Been Waiting For
Obama's speech at Hampton University - you need to scroll down to get to the complete text. I know it's not everybody's thing - the poetic vision of America that finds a home in black preaching, the inspiration of religious imagery - but it works on me. It sends chills down my spine that we might actually elect a President who could and would give a speech like that - with such a clear understanding and acknowledgment of the pain and injustice that so many face.
