And that's the change we need

Barack Obama has brought his A game. He is/was rockin’ the house. I’ll have the video as soon as it is available.

The speech was too long. Still the passion was there. The themes that we will hear over the next 5 months are here. Iraq is going to be big. Health care will be big. Economy. Energy will be big.

Here are Barack Obama’s prepared remarks.

Tonight, after fifty-four hard-fought contests, our primary season has finally come to an end.

Sixteen months have passed since we first stood together on the steps of the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois. Thousands of miles have been traveled. Millions of voices have been heard. And because of what you said – because you decided that change must come to Washington; because you believed that this year must be different than all the rest; because you chose to listen not to your doubts or your fears but to your greatest hopes and highest aspirations, tonight we mark the end of one historic journey with the beginning of another – a journey that will bring a new and better day to America. Tonight, I can stand before you and say that I will be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

I want to thank every American who stood with us over the course of this campaign – through the good days and the bad; from the snows of Cedar Rapids to the sunshine of Sioux Falls. And tonight I also want to thank the men and woman who took this journey with me as fellow candidates for President.

At this defining moment for our nation, we should be proud that our party put forth one of the most talented, qualified field of individuals ever to run for this office. I have not just competed with them as rivals, I have learned from them as friends, as public servants, and as patriots who love America and are willing to work tirelessly to make this country better. They are leaders of this party, and leaders that America will turn to for years to come.

Clinton Invokes Assination of RFK

While Senator Hillary Clinton was in South Dakota giving an interview to the local Sioux Falls newspaper, she talked about people who were trying to push her out. She said, “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.”

Before the North Carolina primary, a Clinton operative called me about being on my radio show. I was very happy that I was sought out. Soon, I was involved in a conversation about my blog and the things that I have written about Clinton. This Clinton operative saying that I was very harsh toward the Senator. I don’t think that I have written anything that was personal or demeaning, but I have been very critical of the way that she has run this race. Heck, to be honest, I didn’t think that she should have entered the race. I thought that she was a divisive person. I didn’t think that the country or the Democratic Party needed divisiveness. Needless to say, I didn’t get the interview.

In retrospect, I was sort of correct. Clinton did strengthen the democratic party by being in the race. I didn’t foresee that. She did prove that the American people will vote for a woman. I think that we are ready for female president. This is a great thing for America and the democratic party. However, from about mid-February until today, she has been the divisive character that I originally thought that she was. She has actually been more divisive that I would have ever imagined.

Today, Hillary Clinton has gone a comment too far. Hillary needs to drop out of the race, NOW!
