Obama's declaration

Rather than comment directly on Obama's announcement this morning, I will refer readers to the coverage at Sweetness & Light, which is doing a superb job of comparing the airy rhetoric of today with previous statements. I trust that S&L, which  does archival research better than anyone else, is going to become essential reading for all who follow the candidacy which tries to mean everything to everyone.
