Is Obama JFK For The 21st Century?

I’m not American, and if I was I’d suggest that Ron Paul would be where my vote might go (guns aside…I don’t get gun ownership, never have, never will), but having watched the following tonight I cant help but think that an Obama victory would be a good thing for us all, the world and the United States included. Video as follows; others have made the JFK comparisons, I think it’s a fair call. Wow on the speech side, the whole thing was unscripted. As I noted to Chris Baskind on Twitter, I winced at the “my story is unique to America” line because it’s not, it could be Australia as well, but that aside there is little doubt that this guy is a master orator.
