1. WOW!!!
Thanks SO much for this link. This man is speaking his truth. And, wow.
To know why truth is power, just listen to John Kerry, any words spoken in the year 2006.

4. Just watched it
Everyone should see this - I agree with fedup - I can't express how incredibly powerful this is. The emotion when he is speaking of his dad's and his own experience is unbelievable.

The transformation of all that pain into a charge to heal the world is awesome. This is unbelievably powerful. This ould sway friends and relatives on the fence - Kerry makes a powerful appeal on both the environment and health care. The Democrats are on the right side of both these issues.

14. That was incredible.
Very moving and inspiring. I loved how he used the word "pro-life". His definition of the word should be used more often by Democrats. Anyone who says John Kerry is not a dynamic speaker has not listened to him speak.

21. Well, better than nothing, but can we all agree they missed the story?
Which was the speech itself. It's like the MSM sees something that doesn't go along with the aloof image and just edit it, and make sure it never sees the light of day.

Anyway, local news is so bad, I guess I shouldn't complain. At least they had a story with him in it.

23. That summary doesn't begin to explain what he said
it kind of missed things like health care and cleaning the environment, stem cell research, education etc.

20. can you all contact C-SPAN and ask them to air this ?
i'm going to call them . i think calling would be better than email. actually both would be good.

it doesn't have to be on the Road to the White House special. i would just like them to air it.

22. "grace only comes from responsibility"
(at the end of the speech) this I think is JK in a nutshell, and is what makes him so special.
