President of my "shining city on the hill"

The Black President, standing in the downpour, takes us to the mountaintop. See if you can watch the full 4:00 minutes without weeping.

I couldn't.

That's why we understood that black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, young, old, rich, poor...it doesn't matter. We are all Americans, and our destiny will be shaped by us...The clouds, these too will pass. That a brighter day will come...Lock arms, talk to your neighbors, do some organizing; yes, do some 'community organizing'...we will win the general election, and you and I, we will change the country. We will change the world!
Mr President, I am with you. If they try to take you down, they're going to have to go through me and my people and millions and millions like us. We are behind you, sir.

Good snippets but the complete speech was awesome! One of his best. It's available at his website or on YouTube.
