New Eras

Word on the street is that Obama’s speechwriters wrote his speech 3 times and then he re-wrote the whole thing in his own words, his own flavour.  These are the ones I liked best, as I watched:

From President Obama:

“What the cynics have failed to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them.”

“We reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals.”

[To other world leaders] Your people will judge you by what you can build, not what you can destroy.”

We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”

With hope and virtue let us brave once more the icy currents and endure what storms may come.”

I am also duly impressed that the new administration had their hot new Whitehouse website / blog up in under 10 seconds of the swearing in…it is very interactive.  This certainly makes a statement.
