BTC: Barack Obama Speaks In Public Watch

I’m going to attempt to think of a recent Canadian political speech that might be worth such discussion here, but, in the meantime, here’s some analysis of Mr. Obama’s little chat in Philadelphia today. Our system is still better, but theirs does tend to encourage some good oratory. And plenty of discussion of said oratory.
James Carney: Breathtakingly unconventional
John Dickerson: He contains multitudes
Michael C. Dawson: Too little, too late
Roger Simon: Hope and redemption
Richard Wolffe: Audacious
Andrew Sullivan: A speech we have all been waiting for
Joe Klein: Stunning
Ana Marie Cox: A powerful moment
Hilary Clinton: I haven’t read it
