My lordy. This young man is an amazing speaker. My entire apartment was clapping and hooting. The only time we make more noise is during episodes of The O.C., and even that's a close call.

Obama did an amazing job bringing together everyone. It didn't feel like a Democratic speech -- it truly felt like an American speech, a Presidential speech. I was thoroughly impressed by his heartfelt comments and I was proud to be from Illinois.

As Pandagon said, "You know how good this speech is? It will be on rap albums next year, during the tracks that are trying to be socially conscious."

Oh yeah: The full text of Obama's speech
