Check out a post I made on July 27, 2004:
This guy, Barack Obama, is an awesome speaker. I had never heard of him. I am impressed. I almost wish HE were the candidate now, but he will be a tremendous boost to the Dems if not only in Illinois. Get him on the campaign trail. Iâ€™m looking for a streaming video somewhere so I can see that again. But let me tell you this: If he were the Democratic candidate, and the Republicans saw him up there accepting the nomination and speaking like that, theyâ€™d be shaking in the their boots, cause he is good. Text of his speech at his Weblog/blog site
I kind â€˜a nailed it, didnâ€™t I?
