An interesting addition to Sen. Barack Obama's stump speech, based on a line from Hillary Clinton during last night's debate.

“In the face of such cynicism, in the course of this campaign, I was derided… last night one of my opponents said that we should stop giving people false hope, that we need a reality check. What kind of an agenda is that, false hope?"

"The notion of false hopes bugs the heck out of me, if we have a sense of urgency and political will we can get things done."

BTW: Bill Bradley will endorse him tomorrow.
