Obama speech was worth the wait

If anyone had any doubts about Barack Obama delivering the acceptance speech in a football stadium, tonight's performance should have put them to rest.

Obama not only delivered yet another in his ever-growing list of memorable speeches, but he tackled head on the McCain campaign's efforts to label him a celebrity and an elitist.

The speech clearly promoted Obama's vision, while forcing John McCain to avoid being labeled as an out of touch candidate who is attempting to continue the failed policies of the Bush administration.

I miss the less choreographed conventions of the past, but when it comes to oratory, any convention that offers Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and the underappreciated (until this week) Joe Biden, has provided entertainment galore for those who love politics.
