Obama's Speech

Senator Obama wrote and delivered a very good speech, although if I were his grandmother I wouldn't have appreciated it since he aired her private foibles to offset his pastor's public rants. As I said before, he was stuck, he spent too long doing nothing about his pastor's behavior to leave gracefully now and he took the only way out -- turning his chosen pastor into an unchosen, crazy uncle: too close to family to be discarded, too divisive to be justified.
