Dissecting Obama’s Historic Speech

| the entire program

Yesterday, in front of a crowd of nearly 85,000 people in Denver, Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama gave an historic acceptance speech. He spoke on the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s I have a Dream speech, invoking more economic populist rhetoric than ever before. Responding to the Republican critique that he had not provided specifics about his plans as president, Obama spelled out his position on the economy, the environment, education, health care, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and more. He clearly delineated himself from his rival John McCain, and current president Bush.

Today we take a look at Obama’s stated policies with Ethel Long-Scott,

GUEST: Ethel Long-Scott, Executive Director of the Women’s Economic Agenda Project, (WEAP), and editorial board member of the Black Commentator.
