    Obama & Speeches, Many great speeches given by people who enchanted,& captivated their audiences,taking the masses with them was later to have been proved a disaster. Just to mention a few: Shukery, Abdul Nasser, Arafat, Nasrallah, Ahmadienjad. And now, Obama.(Hope.An exception) Arafat,& Obama got the Peace Prize ! No kidding ! Really ! It's one thing to get the Peace Prize for nothing,& quite another thing,people working for decades to alleviate the sufferings of the poor,the destitute,the weak & broken. They,the silent ones without fanfare,& a merry-go-round of endless parties.They should have had the benefit of the prize. It would also show the world & others,that there is reward for perseverance & hard work.Day in & Day out. An example for others to follow.
