If you watched the Democratic Convention last night you saw the future of our party. Barack Obama delivered the speech of the night. Possibly the speech of the future.

This was one of the most powerful speeches I have ever heard. It was optimistic, it was inspiring, and it was delivered with a sincerity that we don't often see these days. Even Tucker Carlson had to agree it was pretty impressive.

In my opinion, this is the direction of the new Democratic Party. With Bill Clinton, we became complacent, docile. Honestly, did you really think Al Gore was going to lose in 2000? I didn't. I don't think a lot of us did. We quit fighting for the things that got Bill Clinton elected and we rested on our laurels. We got fat, we got lazy, and we got weak. (If you need evidence, just look at the 2002 congressional election.)

We're getting strong again. Barrack Obama is the example. He is going to be one of the leaders of the new Democrats. Revitalized, optimistic, energetic, and inspirational. We will take this country back and it will again be a better place.

UPDATE: Read a transcript of his speech here. It's worth it.
