The Race Speech

This has nothing to do with libertarians, but I think I need to point out that Barack Obama gave a hell of a speech about race today. Read the full text here or watch the video below.

He may not want to repeal gun laws or privatize Amtrak, but try to tell me that this isn't a man would would bring dignity and reconciliation back to our national politics. That's got to count for something in November.

Update: Conservative/libertarian Charles Murray on Obama's speech: "As far as I'm concerned, it is just plain flat out brilliant—rhetorically, but also in capturing a lot of nuance about race in America. It is so far above the standard we're used to from our pols.... But you know me. Starry-eyed Obama groupie."
