When was the last time a politician really inspired you?
I like Hilary don't get me wrong, and having a woman president is long overdue but when I hear Barack speak, he reminds me of the kind of politician I grew up watching before sound bites and all the bullshit - we screened that film BOBBY a couple of years ago at AFI FEST and while the film itself isn't perfect - the last 10 minutes of the film, of Bobby Kennedy's speech, are so powerful - truly awesome.
I want to be inspired by the leaders of the United States and I've been sick waiting these last 8 years for someone to do that.
Listen to this episode of THIS AMERICAN LIFE - I love it.
Here's a song I like but search you tube for the actual speech too - it's amazing.
