Die bessere Rede

Barack in BerlinAmerican political commentators have begun, and will long continue, discussing Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention. But from a broader perspective of time and space, of history and geopolitics, Senator Obama's August 28 speech in Denver can rank no higher than the second best oration of this political season. His July speech before an audience of some 200,000 in Berlin's Tiergarten ranks much higher in my estimation.

speaking is good. And to speak well is very good. I prefer esse quam videri.
