What Is Your Favorite Barack Obama Moment?

On Nov. 4 we found out that we have at least another four years to make Barack Obama memories, but I'm sure some of the all time best will come from this year. Before he beat Hillary Clinton for the nomination, Barack delivered a compelling speech in Philadelphia addressing the recurrence of questions about Jeremiah Wright, as well as the effect of race on his candidacy. After locking up the presumptive-nomination Obama launched a world tour, stopping in Germany to speak before tens of thousands of Berliners.

In the week before the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Barack had supporters waiting by their cell phones for a text message about his choice for VP. We finally found it was none other than gaffe-machine Joe Biden, who would soon join Obama on stage after his rock-star sized acceptance speech before thousands at Invesco Field. After a slump in the polls Obama fought back and used his debate performances to hold his lead. Finally, on Nov. 4 he gave a somber victory speech, but one that included the triumphant proclamation that change had come to America.

Obama capped off his eventful year (to say the least) by unveiling his administration's team of rivals, including rival, and now cabinet member, no. 1 Hillary Clinton. Since we already asked you about your favorite John McCain moment in our roundup of the best stories of 2008, tell me which Obama moment did you like the best!

None of these moments for me. It all seems so orchestrated and fake to me. Not just him but all politics, it's all talk and once elections are over nothing changes (for the better).

Just thinking about his victory speech gives me chills.

Even though being there for his election speech was a phenomenal experience I chose the last one. He's a really good orator, we all know that. But, with his assembling the cabinet, we get our first glance at what kind of president he's really going to be. I have to say I've been extremely impressed with who he's chosen. Even my parents (both of them McCain voters) have come around to him due to who he's picked and the wisdom that he's shown thus far.
