The American Promise.

Videos like this really highlight the difference between the two campaigns. Barack Obama really has started a movement, he has energised people in a way that the McCain campaign have simply been unable to match.

McCain, like Clinton before him, has sought to write this off as "celebrity" or "just words". But what they miss, I feel, is that when they attack Obama in this way they are also attacking the millions of people who have become caught up in his message.

Palin, initially, had a touch of this, but it faded within a fortnight; which only shows how astonishing it is that Obama has managed to maintain these levels of excitement for eighteen months.
