    This speech would rank among the finest and most inspiring in all of human history

    Imagine Obama delivering this speech... but then again with the sore losers from the Tea Party Republicans acting so sore (their kins in Texas are already agitating for secession) he might just deliver this speech.

    At the time it was given it was criticised by the media as being short and uninspired. I have thought one of the reasons its famous is its short enought to makes kids memorise. Very rare for poltical speechs.l
