Barack obama 2004 dnc speech highlights

Hope in the face of difficulty! Tonight, if you feel the same energy I do, the same urgency I do, the same passion I do, the same hopefulness I do — if we do what we must do, then I have no doubt that all across the country, from Florida to Oregon, from Washington to Maine, the people will rise up in November, and John Kerry will be sworn in as president, and John Edwards will be sworn in as vice president, and this country will reclaim its promise, and out of this long political darkness a brighter day will come. In the end, that is God's greatest gift to us, the bedrock of this nation; the belief in things not seen; the belief that there are better days ahead. He concluded by expressing his belief that in November Kerry and Edwards would be elected, and with their inauguration, "this country will reclaim its promise, and out of this long political darkness, a brighter day will come. After the war, they studied on the G. They know we can do better. When that was over, he was going to take a jog. The pundits like to slice and dice our country into. I was just hoping that it would be on Thursday night, instead of on Tuesday night," he joked after extended applause. Obama was better. John Edwards calls on us to hope. Whereas Reagan's narrative focused heavily on individualism , Obama used the metaphor of hope to call for a balance between those individual values and community values , the latter also being necessary for the achievement of the American Dream. And John Kerry believes that in a dangerous world, war must be an option, but it should never be the first option.

John Kerry believes in an America where all Americans can afford the same health coverage our politicians in Washington have for themselves. But I've got news for them, too: We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don't like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the Red States.

Kennedy took center stage last night at the Democratic National Convention, accusing President Bush of squandering the good will that flowed to America following the Sept. Back home, my grandmother raised their baby and went to work on a bomber assembly line. Some Obama advisors were concerned prior to his delivery, because it amounted to the first time he used a teleprompter. Although there were some internal worries about his style of speaking, lack of experience with a teleprompter, opposition to the Iraq War that Kerry initially supported, and the fact that he was only a state senator, they eventually chose Obama over the other finalist, Jennifer Granholm, in part because polls showed Kerry with less support among African-Americans than Democrats normally enjoyed and because he was running for an important Senate seat.
