Our president is taking the podium....
I just wish he'd drop that preacher intonation in his speeches.
Funny isn't it? The man sure is in love w/ himself.
No boos yet for McCain and Palin, actually some cheers.
I don't know about that. It just sounds fake. Like a put on.
What channel are you guys watching?
Chicago Local Coverage, I think MSNBC said they would have it.
I bet he practices in front of the mirror.
I'm watching CNN.
I'm watching ABC
Most speakers should practice before giving a speech.
He probably thinks he's making this all up on the spot too.
You sound a bit bitter. It's an historic night. Relax a bit. The campaign's over.
you wouldn't like to hear MLK speak if he were alive today if that bothers you.
nah, Obama just needs to invoke a few "my friends" to start each sentance.
You mean, MLK, the Southern preacher, spoke like a Southern preacher?
It's the put on that gets me. Obama didn't speak like this before this year.
I bet most people don't get the connotation
Whew! We haven't had a powerful speech like that in at least 8 years.
i'm sure he's worked on his oratory skills.
