Barack Obama Speech Thread

I have to head over to Take Back so I'll probably miss the speech but it looks like Senator Obama should be taking the stage any minute. Use this thread to follow the speech.
Update [2008-3-18 11:8:7 by Jerome Armstrong]:I figured. What Obama wants to do is pivot it back to Clinton vs Obama, and get the Republican attack on him through Wright off the table, so he's equated Wright and Ferraro multiple times in the speech. We'll see if the Clinton surrogates fall for it or rise above and ignore it.
...We can dismiss Reverend Wright as a crank or a demagogue, just as some have dismissed Geraldine Ferraro, in the aftermath of her recent statements, as harboring some deep-seated racial bias.
Otherwise, great speech.
