The Greatest American Speeches of all time.

I was very disappointed with this title. Most of the speeches were from American oraters, and while I can appreciate that some of them would constitute inclusion, it was very one sided. Noticable missing was Chief Seattles speech, considered the greatest speech on the environment ever.
