The Corner

The one and only.

Overall Assessment


I listened to the speech more than I watched it (my computer’s on the other side of my apartment), but I thought it was quite effective. The President gave a forceful, optimistic and confident speech. It was not overly partisan, but it was quite principled, and it was better than I expected. I’m curious whether those who watched the President’s delivery came to the same conclusion.
