As most of you likely know by now, on Saturday afternoon, on the eve of the health care reform vote, Obama spoke to the Democratic caucus who listened with uncharacteristically silent attention. There was no pep rally atmosphere.
Obama centered the speech around a Lincoln quote: “I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. We are not bound to succeed, but we are bound to let whatever light we have shine.”
It was a very smart, very emotional, very carefully crafted speech—and worth listening to in its entirety.
