    Obama, in about as much of a pressure situation as you can be in, delivers one of the greatest speeches of the past 50 years. He didn't give an inspirational hymn, he absolutely drilled McCain and showed EXACTLY why's he's the right person for this time. But, I'm sure that the righties will come on here and try to downplay what he did last night. Though, quick question for you - Obama speaks in front of crowds that have been as large as 200,000, you think even 20,000 would show up to hear McCain?

    This race is clearly Obama's to lose, I can't wait to see them debate cause its these 2 are on 2 totally different levels.

    TelePrompTers™ are generally not allowed at debates.

    You would be the fifteen year old that can't make an argument on here without using a curse word right? So I wouldn't expect you to have the maturity to give credit where credit is due then

    I am also looking forward to the debates.

    I suspect Obama is going to kick McCain's ass from one end of the stage to the other.

    He is both a formitable intellect who seems to have a firm grasp of the issues, but he is a formitable speaker, too.

    I think McCain is nuts for debating him, personally.

    It will be "MUST SEE T.V." that's for sure!

    I can't wait!

    I'm looking forward to the debates too... but for a different reason.

    McCain is, as Obama so eloquently put it last night, a fine, patriotic American who just has no clue how 90% of his national neighbors live, laugh and love in this country. It doesn't make him evil or worthy of an "ass kicking", he just has a different vision for the future. I hope that the debates highlight those differences.

    I hope that Obama is for real and I hope that there is enough change in Congress to pull of his ambition for the country. There are a LOT of bought and paid for pawns of the professional lobbyists on both sides of the Congressional Aisle that need to get their walking papers from us.

    Obama wrote his speech himself, if he used a teleprompter to stay on track is that wrong? I'd have never known he was reading from a prompter, he was that well spoken. He didn't stumble and stammer. His words were fluid and well thought out.

    Brilliant speech both in deliver and content!

    He did not write the speech himself.

    He has three speechwriters - Jon Favreau, Ted Sorensen and Ben Rhodes.

    Rather than ask me for a source (which I can readily provide) I suggest you save what little dignity you have left and promptly leave this thread.
