If you have not heard this speech I think it is a must for anyone who doesn't know that much about Obama yet. It has to be one of the best speeches I have ever heard (I admit I'm somewhat young so that doesn't count for too much). Many of my older friends who also like Obama tell me that Obama reminds them of JFK in his early bid to run for president. JFK is before my time but I definitely am very inspired by Obama. The manner in which Obama won was historical in Iowa. He is the only candidate who can bring together all races and all the political alliances (dems, republicans and independents). If you're on the fence check out my recap of Iowa, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, (you can even skip the article I don't mind), scroll to the bottom of my article to the you tube speech of Obama and give it a try. I think you'll be very impressed. http://hubpages.com/hub/Obama-Wins-Iowa----Young-Voters-Propel-Hillary-to-3rd-Place

I am a little bit confused about Obama. He talks a lot about hope and change, and he seems to have the youth vote in the bag, but I don't know what he means by hope and change. He is just not being specific enough for my taste. I have to agree that he is just another politician. Seems he might win the nomination, though.

Obama is actually one of the few candidates who doesn't change his views or policies based on the who he's talking to (i.e. Hillary or Romney). Here's a link to his website to see what Obama is all about: http://www.barackobama.com/index.php The 3 top Dem's are all bery similar as the majority of America is so fed up with Bush's policies that Iraq and the economy are being forced to the forefront. But there are many differences in what each candidate is going to do.
