Hope and Graciousness

I believe that these may be two of the greatest speeches of our times.

I have never liked John McCain so well as I do in this speech. It is remarkable for it's profound graciousness, and is the most eloquent speech I have ever heard from him (or any losing candidate). Among other things, it was stirring to hear him firmly shush the crowd from it's unkind booing; by example he called for a more noble response from all of us.

Obama's speech is inspiring (as usual) but it may have more historical value than we can now appreciate. It marks a milestone of course because he is Black, but even more importantly because he is UNIVERSAL. He represents the collective voice of America calling not just for a change in administration but for a change in values away from the old style, self-serving, partisan politics (where government is a tool for the special interests and the powerful) to a government that actually seeks intelligence over power. If he can pull it off, this will be a speech to remember!
