Race and Identity Politics

Barack Obama is set to make a speech in Philadelphia today to put to rest the racial rhetoric that has surrounded the campaign over the past week. While I don't think it's fair to expect any one speech to settle the issues in this campaign, it should send a clear message that the Obama remains true to its principles of unity. From this point out, further divisive politics from the Clintons will look exceedingly desperate.
