If you haven’t watched one of Obama’s speeches recently, this one is a barn-burner. He was clearly feeling his oats last night after exceeding expectations.
TPM has edited out one significant element of the speech. Obama took the high road: instead of attacking Clinton, he graciously prepared the ground for the Democratic Party to unite behind his candidacy.
The media (rightly, finally!) see this as the end for Clinton’s candidacy. She, too, is being invited to take the high road: if not by dropping out of the race, then by laying off the Rovian smear campaign.
