Obama 46, Clinton 43
Obama 48, McCain 43... Clinton 46, McCain 44
This poll must be post Obama speech!

Actually surprisingly enough this poll was taken from the 15-18th before his speech.

Very surprising poll, his speech was on the 18th. We need to see the trend in gallup over this weekend to really get a better contextual sample to see if this trend is real; and if so this Obama supporter is happy

Yes, illinoisindie, we must wait and see.
The speech Obama gave will go down in history as perhaps one of the top ten speeches ever given in American Politics.
Scholars and historians will analyze it for years to come for its poignancy, context, timing, and honesty.
However, having said that, did enough people pay attention to the 40 minute speech by Obama? Or will many more just remember the 30 second sound bite from Wright? I put the attention span of most Americans slightly under a hyperactive dog with ADD, so that may be unkind for Obama in the next few weeks. The right wing clowns are already spinning this like a top - reminiscent of how they portrayed MLK during the 60's as a radical.
As someone said earlier - the people get a government they deserve. And we have had Bush for 8 years, so what does that tell you? I bet we end up with Bush 3, I mean McCain, in November. Maybe in 4 years, when we get another boatload of younger voters, we will have a chance at a real progressive candidate. Until then, the war-mongers and politicians will win over true leaders I fear.
