TNR on the Obama speech

What I've read of the two articles from The New Republic on Obama's speech yesterday has been thoughtful (part 1 and part 2). But one notion that struck me in particular: how kickass would Obama's campaign be if Hillary weren't running and Bill could get behind him? Because over and over I hear, "The only other politician besides Obama to do X so skillfully has been Bill Clinton."

Then again, if she weren't running he might not have had as much of a challenge to rise to.
