Barack Obama's speech on March 18 transcends the Presidential election. The issues he addresses, and the candor with which he addresses them, showed me that he cares more about our country and our world than he does about becoming President. Whether he wins or loses, this man is critical to our progress as a species.
Please, invest a half-hour of your life to watching this entire speech. Don't settle for soundbites or distillations from people who think they know what the important bits were or what they really mean. Sit yourself down and just watch the whole damn thing. Afterward, support whoever you want for President. But deal with what Obama says honestly.
This is straight talk, folks.
