37. Kennedy is One of the All-Time Great Speakers
This was one of the greatest speeches I have ever heard Kennedy give. I heard it live at 1 PM on Tuesday, then taped it when C-SPAN replayed it Tuesday night. There is almost nobody better than a fired-up Ted Kennedy, and this was classic. All the great explanations of what Democrats are when they are at their greatest, all the strong, uncompromising challenges to Bush and Republicans--and criticizing Republicans as Republicans, not afraid to name their guilty Party. Kennedy has such an encyclopedic knowledge, that you get issue after issue clearly described, with real conscience about what is wrong and what needs to be done, and all the great literary and historical references. No wonder the Kennedys always made high intelligence glamorous. This was a speech to study: fiery and exciting, very informative, with warmth and humor, a deep and very long span of history, and a clear understanding of complex situations. Thank God for Ted Kennedy; what a National treasure.
