I thought I'd go ahead and bring this speech over here to DU3 from my DU2 journal for the folks that might not have already had the opportunity to listen to it or might not even knew that it existed. In my opinion it is one of Obama's best speeches, but I rarely ever hear anyone reference it.

There will be a lot of talk from the GOP in the upcoming year about President Obama's religion/views (of course)
as the GOPers try to paint themselves as The Christians and Obama as 'something else'.

For the DUers that take the time to listen to the speech posted above, I hope ya'll will share your thoughts with us in the comments on this thread.
