I am the first one to admit that I found Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention electrifying.  His presidential bid appears to be trying to carve out a niche of rising above partisanship, something that after the last decade of "party over country" politics has a clear appeal.  Street Prophets dubbed it the "Ministry of Reconciliation."

Unfortunately, his campaign issued a statement about rival Hillary Clinton this week that I'd expect from a GOP campaign, not the man who wrote "Audacity of Hope".
