Direct, Motivating, Positive

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.

He did all he promised

There's just about a month to the end of his second term. I listened to his speech and imagined me in that hall as someone from the future, who definitely can tell if he is lying or not, if he just trying to fool people with hollow and vauge promises or he really has a clear plan? And clearly he had a considered plan. He knew exactly what he wanted. He knew what he's going to do for health care, for LGBTs, for clean energy, for nuclear negotiations with Iran, for fighting Al-Qaeda and bin ladan, and for everything he mentioned.
He was honest. He is honest. And he did a great job in last eight years. He could do much better if his opponent wouldn't tie his hands.

Truly a Wonderful Moment in time

This may not be another "I have a dream!" or "Ask not what your country can do for you," speech, but it certainly spoke to my heart in a way I thought would never happen in my lifetime.
