* FOXNews.com gets us started off with this take on Obama’s speech this morning in Philadelphia on race, politics and national unity. It starts off like this... Barack Obama roundly condemned the remarks of his controversial pastor on Tuesday but also took several steps to explain why the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr.’s incendiary rhetoric is still valid...

Did Obama's Speech Help or Hurt?
My take on the Obama Speech is this:
Can’t wait till fall gets here!!!

I believe today’s speech by Obama satisfied many in the black community... most in the MSM... but I truly believe most Americans have now heard all of Obama’s rhetoric and have heard about all of the speeches by him that they could ever want. I believe the Obama Mania is now mostly over. We shall soon see.

Yet... I do personally believe that Senator Barack Obama will be the Democrats Presidential Nominee when it is all said and done. I also believe the Dems will tear their party apart over the next few months and I believe when the dust settles... my man Senator John McCain will be standing there before them... and with all of his wisdom and past experience... WIN!

Here’s His Speech ... In Person
