iPol: Obama's Kickoff

Excerpted from this post at iPol
... Bedlam as Barack hits the stage. The phrase "rock star reception" is overused, and anyway, hardly does justice to the welcome he receives from the crowd. Seriously, what it's like to get that kind of lift from a crowd of strangers probably only Bono, the Pope and a handful of other mortals know. Add Obama to their number. ... In contrast with the Hillary kickoff, this was a speech, not a town hall meeting. Obama talked about his family, his background, his political career, his newly-launched campaign for the White House. And the war. Eloquence throughout and to spare. But it isn't all oratory and no substance
