Obama Acceptance Speech Word Cloud

I love the way Wordle visually depicts the essence of a long written work -- like like last night's acceptance speech -- into a word cloud. (I'll do the same for McCain next week, too).

Barry - thanks for that. Interesting. Just finished listening to CSPAN's YouTube posting of the entire speech. My own stance is studiedly neutral observer and analyst who tries to match my own assessments of issues and challenges to candidates positions and statements. For proof and approach - the same I try to bring to the analysis of markets and the economy - you can check out:

Now that's preamble - Barry touched all the bases, his policy recommendations were exactly the ones I think are required, he was direct, emotional and authentic and he spoke pointedly to values. While not my candidate per se this is the best major political speech I've heard in decades. Speaking analytically and professionally. Not to start a war here - agree or disagree - take his checklist and run down it and come to your own conclusions instead. This was as constructive an effort as we've heard since at least 1980...and perhaps 1960 IMHO.
