Barack Obama spoke in Portland today after receiving the endorsement of New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson in a surprisingly thrilling speech before a packed house at Memorial Coliseum.

I decided not to fight the crowds, but more than one of my coworkers went, and all agree that all the speeches were inspiring, and that Obama was electrifying. I like to think that the oh-so-left-wing audiences they find here in Portland put them at their ease by giving them an overwhelmingly warm reception.

I've been reserving judgment on the presidential race to far, partly because Oregon's primaries mean very litter. But now I'm thinking that Obama/Richardson would make a dream ticket.

There's really no question that 70% of the nation is ready for change, and frankly if Obama is smart enough to talk about it openly, then he deserves the votes. Doing something about it is another question, one I reserve judgment on until he's in office, but the very fact that he's in-touch enough to market himself as the agent of change tells me that he may be smart enough to be president.
