Obama's victory speech

I'm really hoping Barack Obama will win the 2008 presidential election. That's not at all based on his political ideas. I'm no American citizen so I can't say I'm informed enough to pass judgment on his ideas. My political preference in this race to the White House is based purely on his public speaking skills. Check out this video of his victory speech yesterday in Iowa.

His oratory skills are really, really good. Add that to his charm and natural leadership and most politically uninformed people (like me) would agree that this guy could well be on his way to the White House.
