I do like that speechwriter of Obama's.
"We are a people of improbable hope" and "heirs to a struggle for freedom". Well put.
Though the husband thought it, the speech in Berlin that is, was a little too full of platitudes. I'm not so sure. It must be tricky, to do the "speech in Berlin"-thing. People expect you to go for the everlasting sentences, to reach for success like a certain earlier president. And they expect you to fail.
I don't think Obama failed. He didn't blow me away either. But as a whole - well spoken.
