Obama ’08, a reason I’d be in downtown in August

It looks like it’s more or less official, Senator Barack Obama is starting to explore a Presidential bid. If there was something to lure me into Denver during the DNC, it’d be to see Senator Obama speak. I missed him when he was in Denver a few months ago for a book signing at the LoDo Tattered Cover.

With the exception of wanting to see the Senator speak, wild hippos won’t be able to drag me into downtown during the DNC.

    You didn’t miss much; his speech at Tattered Cover was very generic and basically went: “Gee, isn’t it nice to be here, I really enjoyed writing the book, and won’t you all please read it. I’m going to start signing now since I’ll never get through all of you before I have to be at the rally in a couple hours.

    His speech at the Rally was a little better, but nothing like his 2004 convention speech. If you want a flashback to that, however, Audible.com has that speech available for download. Last time I checked it was free.

    I still have his 2004 speech on my iPod :)

    Glad I didn’t miss much.

    It’s going to be interesting to watch as he defines himself as the anti-Hillary without going too far left. Should be an interesting dance.

    I’m thinking the Obama Edwards ticket might be it. Also be interesting to see how effective the Republican slime machine will be against him.
