    Sometimes even a blind pig finds an acorn.

    I have to admit, that even though I was not a big fan of his policies, I did think he was a great public speaker. There are many values that as American's we all share. Even those that poo poo exceptionalism, like the sentiment that we are the a beacon of hope for the world. Even if they don't believe it to be entirely true. I myself think it is an ideal to which we should aspire.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Just like Obama. I think he is blessed as a public speaker. But that's about it.

    :p
