Barack Obama

My native state has a new star in Barack Obama, whom I saw for the first time last night. Links to the text and video of his speech last night are posted to Dean Nation, where I seem to be minding the store during the convention. (My posts there, however, aren't terribly momentous.)

UPDATE: Some have anointed Barack Obama first-Black-President-in-waiting. He might be Presidential material, but as this Daniel Drezner post reminds me, there's also a guy named Harold Ford, Jr. floating around. Ford might be too moderate for many Democrats, but don't rule him out as someone's 2012 VP pick, with his own shot at a 2016 or 2020 nomination.
