Obama at Tucson

Here’s Obama’s speech at Tucson:

The wild applause of the crowd seems slightly odd at times, though that is the case with a lot of political speeches. A full throated approval in the auditorium sounds tinny and inappropriate. Or perhaps it is the presence of younger people in the audience, more comfortable with vocal expression than with the simple clapping of hands.

But the speech is fantastic – an affirmation of free speech and democracy.

  1. The best orator I’ve ever heard. I still listen to his victory speech in Chicago from time to time – and it sends shivers down my spine and brings me to tears still.
