  • "Fascinating!"

    Overall

    What a great surprise. I downloaded this to try something for the first time from the free section, not thinking anything "free" could be very good. I was wrong - it's worth your time, even if you aren't familiar with the topic.

Kimberly's greatest hits:
  • 2008 DNC: Barack Obama Acceptance Speech (8/28/08)

    "Direct, Motivating, Positive"

    Overall

    What I enjoyed most about Senator Obama's speech is that he not only hit on the key points of what he plans to do if elected, but he also stated what he expects from the American people and the role we can have in solving the issues.
