Barrack Obama has some oratorical competition – from Michelle

A riveting performance from the First Lady at a girls’ school in North London last week. I’ve posted the full 15 minute speech up here, rather than than 2 minute youtube clip. Hard to imagine that Michelle Obama can keep up this level of emotional intensity for the full term – in a year or two, her speeches will probably have become more routine, less heartfelt. So relish this while you can.

  1. Barack Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope,” features a appealing title. It has an idea of bravery mixed confidently. There is nothing Pollyanna about it. I might not support almost everything he tells, but he’s our president, as well as for me, he creates confidence. Which could do more for a region than any volume of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy sustains us through trying times. Boy, we’ve had them. I’m from West Texas, and I did not vote for Bush. When McCain ran against Obama, I was a citizen of Arizona, but I gave audacious hope a chance. The fight for progress and laying the foundations of prosperity is just not over. I’ve come across the quips of those that don’t believe Obama is capable of it. But step back a second. Would anyone have all of us fail simply to tarnish the star of an incumbent for whom they didn’t vote? Trying to keep our priorities straight, let’s work together with this president and build our future.
