I hadn’t planned on watching the acceptance speech – though I knew it would be a major statement on aspects of American foreign policy within President Obama’s personal vision. But, I was just up having my first cuppa, channel-surfing and caught CNN preparing to offer it live.
It was worthwhile watching and listening. Clarity and honesty, principles long missing from American politics.
There are policy points I don’t agree with – but, who the hell agrees with me all the time?
I suggest you watch the whole recording. Here’s a transcript of the speech.
