Wyoming's Youngest Democratic Delegate Praises Obama Speech

Denver, CO – Obama took the stage on the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream speech. Willie Neal says he listened to Obama's speech with older generations of civil rights fighters.

The eighteen-year-old delegate of Jackson Hole lingered around after the convention closed, soaking up what he calls the historic moment. It was impossible not to be inspired by that speech," he says. "It's such a perfect combination of not only distinguishing himself from John McCain, but also presenting for our new America then also describing a plan of how he's gonna bring us there.

Neal says he'll work harder to register voters, not only Democrats, but Republicans as well.
