A History In Great Speeches – Part I – The 2004 Democratic National Convention

It all started back in 2004 when then Junior Senator Barack Obama, from Illinois, gave the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention (FYI – If you buy the latest printing of his book “Dreams from My Father” you can get the text of the speech). A hair raising speech that articulated his life, the message of the Democratic Party, and what would come to be his message throughout his future campaign. I was not alive at the time, but I imagine this is how people who witnessed JFK’s rise and development on the national political scene must have felt. Check out the first in a series of posts that documents Barack Obama’s key speeches as a sort of lineage. Of course, now that he is to become the 44th President of the United States of America, his actions will be louder than his words, but if his speeches can give any indication of his intentions then I think we are in safe hands.
