In case anyone missed it, or just wants to re-watch it,

Here's Obama's midnight speech in Chicago:

So awesome. I've never been more proud to be an American.  thumbsup

so, David Lettermans "Great momens in presidential speeches" are kinda obsolete now? :-)

I wanted to chime in that I thought McCain's speech was excellent last night.  Very gracious. 

I agree.  I was impressed by McCain's consession, and despite the crowd's poor behavior (I'm an Eagles fan, so I am not exactly in a position to lament poor crowd behavior), I also felt his speech was gracious and well presented.

I also felt a level of pride in the man who will soon represent the Presidency of the United States.  I find Obama to be incredibly charismatic, well-spoken, and his delivery and confidence truly elicits feelings of pride, hope, and confidence in our country's future.

The success of this Presidency will obviously be determined by results, but at this stage I am simply pleased to have a man I can respect in the position.  I have always said that I can only work for a person I find to be smarter or more exprienced than I am and who I can respect as a professional.  Otherwise I simply cannot work for someone I do not respect or for someone I find to be intellectually lacking.  I apply this same perspective to the Presidency, and for the past eight years I am sorry to say that I have not been able to respect our current President.  And now it is quite satisfying to have a man in office who I can respect.  Yes, it is certainly too early to determine Obama's potential success, but his poise, demeanor, confidence, and charisma have already helped to earn my respect up to this point.  I am happy to once again respect our President, as a great deal of time has passed since I was last able to say such a thing.

This will be the first time in my 29 year old life that I see my country's president as an inspirational figure and role model.  Until this point I've almost entirely thought of great leaders as people you see in history books.  Now I feel like I'm about to witness a modern day New Deal happen.

Sappy?  Perhaps, but I've been giddy all day.

I am going to miss my paycheck when my job goes away, and working for the electric industry, trust me, it will.   icon_mad

????  Why would you think that?  I'm missing something, clearly. 

Obama has stated openly that his intention is to tax coal-plants so high that any company that tries to run or build them will go bankrupt.  He has SAID this.  Well, I got news for everyone, my company (the 2nd largest in the nation) cannot afford to build anything but coal plants.  So, the end result, and our CEO has all but said it as well, is that the taxes on coal purification will ruin the coal electric industry.  First thing to go is O&M money, my salary is in that, and thus layoffs will ensue.  Mark my words.  While I am concerned about losing the job I have had for 25 years, I am more concerned about what these taxes will do to the cost of everyone's electric bill.  Because I can guarantee you that the electric company will raise the price per kilowatt in order to try and offset these "clear-air" taxes.  And I gotta believe all the other companies will be feeling the pinch as well.  He wants us to build clean nuke plants.  That is all fine and good but the last two times my company tried to do that the regulations and red tape and cost nixed it both times.  So, where does that leave us?

Clear air.  What an Al Gore nutjob joke. Total propaganda to make M  O   N   E   Y.     End of rant.  Just pissed cuz I know exactly where this is all going.  

For anyone who is unaware, the issue mikeg is talking about is an interview that Barack Obama had with the San Francisco Chronicle on January 17th of this year.  I'll quote the relevant passage below, but please be very careful that you only read the boldfaced portion:

Quote from: The San Francisco Chronicle
Obama: I voted against the Clear Skies Bill. In fact, I was the deciding vote. Despite the fact that I'm a coal state. And that half my state thought that I had thoroughly betrayed them. Because I think clean air is critical and global warming is critical. But this notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion. Because the fact of the matter is is that right now we are getting a lot of our energy from coal. And China is building a coal-powered plant once a week. So what we have to do then is figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon. And how can we sequester that carbon and capture it. If we can't, then we're gonna still be working on alternatives.

But...let me sort of describe my overall policy. What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade policy in place that is as aggressive if not more aggressive than anyone out there. I was the first call for 100% auction on the cap and trade system. Which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases that was emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants are being built, they would have to meet the rigors of that market. And the ratcheted down caps that are imposed every year. So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted. That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel, and other alternative energy approaches. The only thing that I've said with respect to coal--I haven't been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter, as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it. That I think is the right approach. The same with respect to nuclear. Right now, we don't know how to store nuclear waste wisely and we don't know how to deal with some of the safety issues that remain. And so it's wildly expensive to pursue nuclear energy. But I tell you what, if we could figure out how to store it safely, then I think most of us would say that might be a pretty good deal. The point is, if we set rigorous standards for the allowable emissions, then we can allow the market to determine and technology and entrepreneurs to pursue, what the best approach is to take, as opposed to us saying at the outset, here are the winners that we're picking and maybe we pick wrong and maybe we pick right.

And despite what the mainstream media wants to lead you to believe about Obama being in the lead, I can almost guarentee you McCain is going to take the election.

Well, as much as I dislike the guy, McCain will take the election in November, guarenteed. I'd put money on it.

Don't forget who put us IN the toilet, Paul.

Your party has shown what it's good for, a national disaster. As McCain said last night, America has spoken, and it has spoken clearly.



Well said!!!!

I am so happy he won, really proud that the country did the right thing. I'm very proud to be a Democrat and an American. Hopefully this helps us regain some respect in the world because I am quite sure this administration will actually CARE about working with other countries.

I suppose Obama could grow some facial hair and try and restart the combo, but it didn't work out too well for Teddy and Taft when they tried to get things going again.

Yep yep. It's already begun. He's already blame proof because GWB set the table. If that's how it works, I guess 9/11 WAS Clinton's fault.

Glad to see that partisanship has dissipated in this exciting time.  If Obama does great it's obama's success. If he fails, it's still GWBs fault.  It's ludicrous.

Depends on who's looking at it.  I think Obama is doomed for failure.  He's going to take over the presidency after an EPIC bad holiday retail season.  Scores of companies are going to post horrendous Q4-Q2 figures (and likely, beyond).  The economy is NOT going to get better anytime soon.  We are NOT going to be able to get out of Iraq anytime soon.  And this is the sort of stuff he's going to have to dig out of this whole the entirety of his first four years.

Who's fault is that?  Lots of people. 

However, if you are a die hard Democrat, here is your answer "G-Dub's fault, give Obama four more years!" and if you are a Republican, here is your answer "Obama didn't get crap done... see?!?!  REPUBLICAN IN 2012!"

In other words, we're still fucked.  I'd be THRILLED if I was wrong though.

I work for a utility industry as well, I'm pro gun, I'm anti-socialized medicine and all that crap.     But let's move on to the part I really want to say:

I had a long discussion with a couple of black coworkers today when we were alone in the break room.     I told them that I was touched and completely understood the thought that their children would be able to watch television, read magazines, and experience first hand the proof that the American dream was alive for all Americans.      That it really doesn't matter anymore what the color of your skin is, and that if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything in this great nation of ours.     I remarked on how I was impressed and excited that Obama invoked the Founders, and other great past leaders of this nation in his speech last night, and that he does this frequently whiich is a big deal for me.     I acknowledged that while I don't agree with many of his policies, it is clear to me that this is a man that loves his country (as does McCain) and believes that we are the best and can be even better.    These are the ideals much the same as Reagan voiced, and one of the major reasons why the Great Communicator and eternal optimist Reagan won in two landslide victories.        Obama exudes leadership, confidence, and optimism.    It was no accident that early in the campaign he invoked Reagan and took the political risk of expressing his admiration for his similiar qualities.

I strongly disagree with some of his stated policies, but that is for another day -- in fact it's for well after the January inaguration.     

For now, all I have to say is congratulations Mr. President.    I wish you success.

Kudos, msduncan. And dammit, Roll Tide, too smile

Sensuous, you shouldn't even bother trying to defend GWB, he's beyond reproach and has earned his disdain, even from many, if not most in the Republican party. He is one of the primary reasons for this lopsided election. I do not consider Obama to be "blame proof" because of him, but there's no doubt that Bush has caused much destruction.

And I don't blame 9/11 on anyone except fundamentalist religion, and the 19 men who commandeered those airplanes.

I think he was a Republican lean, then switched to independent.   Not sure when the (D) transformation happened.

Most important though:   he's a Tennessee fan, and has enjoyed 2 years of Bama butt whoopings.  slywink

Good speech. However I'm a bit confused about the 106 year old woman voting in Atlanta. He said that she was born at a time "when someone like her couldn't vote for two reasons: because she was a woman and because of the color of her skin." The 15th Amendment was ratified in 1870 so that took care of the "color of her skin" part, unless he's referring to things like the Jim Crow Laws (Poll Taxes, literacy and comprehension tests etc.) which were used as ways to discourage or outright stop Blacks from voting. Interestingly enough, she was born in 1902. No one can vote until they're 18 which in Ms Ann Nixon Cooper's case would have been 1920. The 19th Amendment giving women the ability to vote was ratified in....1920.

For the second part, notice that Obama said "she was born at a time", not "she was voting age at a time".

I had a long discussion with a couple of black coworkers today when we were alone in the break room.     I told them that I was touched and completely understood the thought that their children would be able to watch television, read magazines, and experience first hand the proof that the American dream was alive for all Americans.      That it really doesn't matter anymore what the color of your skin is, and that if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything in this great nation of ours.     I remarked on how I was impressed and excited that Obama invoked the Founders, and other great past leaders of this nation in his speech last night, and that he does this frequently whiich is a big deal for me.     I acknowledged that while I don't agree with many of his policies, it is clear to me that this is a man that loves his country (as does McCain) and believes that we are the best and can be even better.    These are the ideals much the same as Reagan voiced, and one of the major reasons why the Great Communicator and eternal optimist Reagan won in two landslide victories.        Obama exudes leadership, confidence, and optimism.    It was no accident that early in the campaign he invoked Reagan and took the political risk of expressing his admiration for his similiar qualities.

I strongly disagree with some of his stated policies, but that is for another day -- in fact it's for well after the January inaguration.     

For now, all I have to say is congratulations Mr. President.    I wish you success.

Very classy MSD.   thumbsup

For the second part, notice that Obama said "she was born at a time", not "she was voting age at a time".

I know. I was pointing out the timing of her turning 18 the same year that Universal Suffrage gets ratified.

I can't wait until Obama takes office, our economy keeps slumping, the troops don't come home, and our country stays in the toilet.

THEN WE CAN BLAME OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS FOR ALL OUR WOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget who put us IN the toilet, Paul.

Your party has shown what it's good for, a national disaster. As McCain said last night, America has spoken, and it has spoken clearly.


Yep yep. It's already begun. He's already blame proof because GWB set the table. If that's how it works, I guess 9/11 WAS Clinton's fault.

Err... You need to update yourself on the history of the Middle East conflict. The situation was birthed long before Clinton became President.

That was kind of my point, Ridah.

And JJ, I'm not defending him. Just pointing out the ridiculous of the assertion- as I've always done- that everything wrong everywhere is GWB's fault.

These kind of comments give me hope with Obama as President:

The president-elect already has said he'll have a five-day online comment period before signing any nonemergency legislation, so Americans can be part of the process.

I'm sure that once/if that becomes the norm, those users will not be the only people commenting.  That, and it's no guarantee that it would affect the President's decision one way or another.

I agree with giving the American public more of a voice in what goes on in Washington.  It's encouraging to me that my vote may not have been my last say until the next election.

I am still in shock that Obama pulled it off. Man.. I'm damn glad I didn't put money on it! Most of the people I work with (at a sheriff's office) where McCain fans.. and every time I visited Georgia nothing but "McCain / Palin" stickers and signs, and all the people I know voted for McCain.

With all the damage Bush has done home and abroad over the past 8 years, it's about time for some change.
