[Photo courtesy of Barack Obama’s Flickr page. No, really.] Two words: Harriet. Tubman. Hillary Clinton gave what is, in my estimation, the best speech of her career (text and video). Ta-Nehisi says it was magnanimous, and that he was sorry when she finished because he wanted to hear more. Ezra calls the speech “effective,” and Read More
