Open Reason (Reposted)

This was true before he gave the speech ... it is true now that he has given the speech.

Barack Obama is slated to give a speech on race.

Will this help or hurt his campaign?

Barack Obama is the very embodiment of reason and common sense. He will state not only his position but the country's position on race. His will be a measured, even, equal and fair assessment of America's "race" situation. He will not make threats. He will not make undue claims.

Barack Obama will tell America the truth. Truth that America has been longing to hear since his opponent's husband occupied the oval office. Truth that will cut through the rhetoric of separation. Truth that will bring and promote healing in a nation ready to move on.

...and the truth will set us all free.
