81. Romney had to give a 'Kennedy speech' as well, see where it got him
and he got pretty good reviews after, doubt Obama will.

The trust is gone for Obama and more speeches are not going to regain the lost trust.

He may keep his base, and the race is almost over unless he gets less than 15% in the remaining contests.

If he does get the nomination, we will watch a landslide victory for McCain in Reagan style.

For a repub that is not popular within his own party to win a landslide victory truly will make this race historic.

Just not in the way we had all expected.
