    I think he does need to do a standalone speech on class. I'd like to see him do it in Indiana but if not then, definitely once general season begins.

    •  Well, he's addressed the three gotcha issues... (2+ / 0-)

      Of the millennium with his speech on race and religion, while touching on the issue of class in his economic speech.  I'm not sure if it helps him to spur on so many debates in the electorate all at once this year.  I would like him to do that... but I think a speech on class, while just as complex as a speech on race and religion, requires even more nuance and he has to walk people through his own reasoning in a way that isn't quick and dirty like usual presidential politics.

      More speeches on class, race (or ethnicity), and religion should be on tap when he is President, when he can devote an hour or so on national television, not on some domestic or international emergency announcement, but rather on a speech that would help put this country back together again.  That's what I'm looking forward to.  I can't imagine Clinton or McCain doing the same thing.

      ... false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. Obama 2008
