Obama has nerves of steel
One of the greatest speeches. The best presidential speech I have ever witnessed. With such high expectations, with so much pressure, in a friggin’ stadium, with the biggest audience watching – he simply nailed it. It was so emotional even though there was nothing fluffy about what he said.
As I walked my dog afterwards, I realized that his focus must have been on intention. Behind every word, he did not emphasize the poetics of it but the why of it. I never understood how people were inspired by speeches. My cynical outlook saw speeches as verbal punches. And though there were many punches that landed on McCain. I was truly inspired. I was set to motion. Powerful stuff. My adrenaline is rushing.
