  •  I liked the speech. (6+ / 0-)

    In the beginning, I thought it was of an intelligence far above to what Americans typically exposed.  One needed to really pay attention, because it was ideas, not simple platitudes.  He wonderfully staked out, with excellent rhetoric, the Democratic/liberal principles.  

    Once he got rolling, he was forceful in affirming his vision.  I especially liked his use and phrasing of "We, the people," to emphasize how it is we, the people who can and must rise up to demand progressive action from government.  

    "It is not, you fucking liberal prick." ..My RW friend Dave's last words to me.
