Obama: "I'm a Hope Mongerer" [VIDEO]

Obama's speech has already become one of the most buzzed about of the speeches so far at the Take Back America conference in Washington DC. Obama talks about his activist roots in Chicago, about why and how he came to decide to run for president, and the deep feeling he believes exists in this country to "turn the page" and embrace "something new." What comes across in the video to your right, is the charisma and personality that made Obama a star back in 2004 and appeared to be fading in recent weeks. If this video is any indication, Hillary had better watch her back in the 2008 presidential race.
