12. The Speech was great.. i probably could have recited it! :)
It's definitely his stump speech.. but he added a bit of Husker Flair. I do think most of the people who saw it today hadn't seen it 18 times on YOUTUBE like I have already though. He got several standing ovations (Slamming George Bush, Leaving Iraq, Supporting Teachers & Merit Pay, College & Health Care). It was about 50 minutes long, and my hand hurt for clapping through the whole thing.

The tone when people were leaving was fantastic.. no one said a negative word.. well about him anyway. I heard a few "and Hillary thinks she can get votes by sending her daughter tomorrow for a few minutes??" comments, but that was about it. Definitely a HUGE feat for Obama. I'd say Nebraska is probably in his corner for sure!
