He is the speech we've been waiting for

Andrew Sullivan’s reaction to Obama’s speech:

But I do want to say that this searing, nuanced, gut-wrenching, loyal, and deeply, deeply Christian speech is the most honest speech on race in America in my adult lifetime. It is a speech we have all been waiting for for a generation. Its ability to embrace both the legitimate fears and resentments of whites and the understandable anger and dashed hopes of many blacks was, in my view, unique in recent American history.

Shorter Sullivan: “he is the speech we’ve been waiting for”.

Who can argue with that?
