In these days leading up to the November elections, wouldn’t it be refreshing to have a speech delivered like this one … just once. ;o)
Oh, sure … we don’t need the demagogue that comes along with it … but, the speech … well, it would be great to hear.
Even Obama himself couldn’t match this one. Willie Stark (a.k.a. Huey P. Long) at least knew how to come back from defeat and rally the populace.
