Just a snip from Senator Obama's speech (emphasis mine):
"I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth."
Gah. Humility? I think he's starting to believe all that messiah stuff. Maybe he always has.
The whole speech can be found at Real Clear Politics, and you can read some comments on the passage I quoted here at Commentary.
