Full Obama speech at the Virginia Jefferson-Jackson Dinner tonight. Note his treatment of McCain. Hillary is doing the same thing and I think it makes sense for him to do as well given the momentum these impressive wins will give him.

Given the recent polling showing Obama matching up better with McCain, this language will begin to make both future states and superdelegates think seriously about backing Barack. He’s made the war point before, but in the context of contrasting with Hillary. This sounds more like “I’m going to win and am the best shot at taking the White House, climb aboard”. Good stuff:

“Somewhere along the line the wheels came off the straight talk express” – Simply brilliant!
