Acceptance speech

Great speech by President-elect Obama.

His habit of clipping the last word in each sentence bothers me, but the vision he expresses reminds me of Reagan and Clinton. How we got the tongue tied Bushes in this stream of rhetoricians amazes me. I guess we get tired of speaking skills.

Change has come to America. Now we’ll find out what that change is. Everything turns on the content of his character – and ours!

Concession speech

I hope you have seen the acceptance and concession speeches. McCain’s made me teary eyed with appreciation. Both of them are excellent speeches. We really are sitting on the edge of history, one way or the other.
