DJWinfo: Obama the Orator -- his graduation speech at Knox College

DJW blogs a good speech by our Jr Senator from Illinois. DJWinfo: Obama the Orator -- his graduation speech at Knox College

Senator Obama has it wrong on the ownership society though. It's "ownership society" ideas that are going to give workers the security to survive rapid change. A nationally managed system of personal investiment accounts and personal health accounts are going to give workers portable benefits. Benefits they can keep when the companies they work for go under in this rapidly changing economy.

Bush is proposing Nationally managed accounts remember. This is a sort of socialism people can't quite understand because Bush isn't waving a red flag.
