The moment we've been hearing about for months is here: Barack Obama will formally accept the nomination for president in front of thousands at Denver's Invesco Field. On the anniversary of King's "I Have a Dream" speech, though Obama was just 2 years old when it happened, comparisons between the two are rampant.
At 10 p.m. EST, Obama will have to live up to this: "I have a dream, that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed — 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.'"
Liberty and I are lucky enough to go and see it live — with the thousands of people in attendance, we won't be able to get you our reactions to the speech immediately, but we will soon! In the meantime, tell us what you thought! Did the performance match the hype? Was it truly a speech of a lifetime?
