    Linclon and Obama (and you can't forget Jefferson) are the most eloquent of America's Presidents. This is a lovely little collection of their inaugural speeches, along with the Gettyburg Address, and Emerson thrown in for good measure. I stood on our national mall on that frigid Janauary day when Barack Obama become our 44th President. I heard this speech surrounded by almost 2 million others. It was a beautiful moment in history. I feel privileged to have witnessed it. This book is the perfect Linclon and Obama (and you can't forget Jefferson) are the most eloquent of America's Presidents.

    "to those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict or blame their society's ills on the west, know that your people will judge you by what you can build, not what you destroy. to those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you will unclench your fist. "to those people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and clean waters flow; "to those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict or blame their society's ills on the west, know that your people will judge you by what you can build, not what you destroy. to those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you will unclench your fist. "to those people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. ... "what is required of us now is a new era of responsibility- a recognition on the part of every American that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task."

    I don't usually read transcripts of speeches, but I made an exception. Obama's speech was quite straightforward, a no-nonsense and not too "flowery" kind of speech, so I didn't mind reading it. Abe Lincoln's speeches and Emerson's Self-Reliance added a nice background to it, and I could see how they made an impression on Obama, from his writing.

    3.5 ⭐️ This was a timely read. I would have much rather read a book of Obama’s speeches, or if he had included an introduction to the other pieces. They seemed oddly juxtaposed to Obama’s: Lincoln explicitly states that he is not in favour of ending slavery, and Emerson writes about individualism in a way that doesn’t seem in line with Obama’s policies and political leaning. The book states that they were included because they shaped Obama politically, philosophically, and personally, but they s 3.5 ⭐️ This was a timely read.

    So much hope and greatness in these 2 men, until they came into power. Still, a lot is to be learned through these speeches, which are parts of history forever.

    A pleasure to read! I can hear his voice in my mind's ear(?). It should be required reading every so many months when people start wondering what the government's doing... I think we need to help ourselves too.

    I don't always agree with what he does, but wanted to reread what he said during the address. Enjoyed the Lincoln addresses.

    An interesting pairing of essays and speeches with this First Inaugural Address of President Obama's that I recall as compelling. It still is very riveting and relevant.

    Emerson is sturdy. Lincoln is brilliant and moving. Obama is heartening, inspired by Lincoln.
