Hell of a speech. I hope he pulls it off.
(TGV wonders quietly whether any Canadian
Federal Leader could pull off a speech like that. Between the nasally drone of Ignatieff, the flat accountant voice of Harper or the karate chopping of Layton, it's hard to imagine any Canadian leader presenting a speech as inspiring as Obama's. Is it any wonder Canadians love the guy and wish we had a guy like him in our country?)
To those who loathe Americans, take a good hard look at your television set. There's two million people in that mall in Washington and while we're quick to condemn America for being too American, everything in Obama's speech rings true. Today is a good day to be an American. Today is a good day for all of us, I think.
I wish the new President and all Americans luck. This inaugural address was a call to service and I hope everyone listening takes him up on it.
