All Barack, All the Time

Barack Obama, the Democratic Party's candidate for the Senate in Illinois, will deliver the keynote address at the convention, officials announced Wednesday.

Obama, a law professor and state senator, will speak on July 27, the second night of the convention, with Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. Obama will talk about the future of America that a Democratic administration would provide, along with the need to make jobs, families and communities top priorities in the lives of Americans.

"Barack is an optimistic voice for America and a leader who knows that together we can build an America that is stronger at home and respected in the world," Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said in a statement.

(And if you'r in Illinois, make sure you get out to vote for Obama in November--he was going to stomp Ryan no question, but there's always the chance someone like Ditka could pull in a novelty vote. He's not Arnold, but still. Having Obama in the U.S. Senate would be a good, good thing.)
