    I was well-delivered, but like I've seen too many of his speeches, it doesn't convince me of anything.

    Is there a shorter version? I'm interested in what he has to say, but 37 minutes is just way too much.

    Still confirms him that Obama is still a good guy.

    American politics are filled with talk based solely on feelings and retoric in a degree that makes me cringe.

    At the very least, I think everyone has to agree that he's good at this stuff. Sure, it was political judo to turn the Pastor Wright "controversy" into a dialogue about race, but I'll be damned if it wasn't a thoughtful discussion of the topic.

    (And I'll be the first to admit that McCain, when he's talking about our men and women in uniform, is good at it, and gets me going.)

    The ability to and willingness to grapple with complex issues in a considered and intelligent way is incredibly refreshing.

    I'd love to hear this man give State of the Union addresses.

    I'm shocked at the level of grammar in the comments... he's inspired great things in the population of youtube.

    He absolutely failed to address anything relevant to why he is now 7 points below Hillary in PA. Wright. And now it is clear to everyone he is all words, no substance.

    Everyone look at awe upon Obama's swiftboat.

    Obama's a pretty good public speaker, but I wasn't impressed by the content.

    Politics is filled with talk based solely on feelings and rhetoric. I wouldn't blame Obama too much for abusing rhetorics, but I do blame his supporters.

    I think that has less to do with Wright, and a lot more to do with the demographic make up of PA

    Down 7 in PA sounds pretty strong.

    Watching it now, and I'm disturbed by some of the Youtube comments. They're more fanatical than normal. Obama is a politician running for President, not God...

    I thought this bit, which came immediately after articulating the problems and anger of blacks, was particularly impressive.
