Media coverage of Obama sentencing speech

As noted here, yesterday Barack Obama gave a speech at Howard University which discussed serious sentencing reform.  The speech appears to have received significant media coverage, as evidenced by article from the AP and the Chicago Tribune.  I do not know how this will play politically, but it is refreshing to hear a major politician talking about sensible sentencing reforms.  That said, it would be nice to see Obama back up this campaign talk with some work on these issues in the Senate.
