Race in the race

Barack Obama's hand may have been forced, but this morning, he gave one of the most stirring and powerful speeches I've heard in a long while, addressing the issue of race in America. It's difficult to understand how any of his opponents could find negative aspects of his speech, but, undoubtably, there will be those who will remain in denial about the issues he has raised. The speech was delivered without hyperbole, in a manner that was honest, dignified and powerful. It was, perhaps, the most presidential speech anyone has given over the course of this long campaign.

The entire text of the speech is here.
