Speech!

We always spend Thanksgiving in Northampton, Massachusetts – a quintessential college town. And I always check out the latest offerings in the store that sells dorm room kitsch, funky T-shirts and stationery, and – my new favorite item – fingerless gloves (great for writers too cheap to turn up the heat).

This trip, I found a new item in stock: a poster, probably four feet long and maybe a foot wide, bearing the text of the speech Barack Obama gave in Grant Park on Election Night.

Imagine that – a speech so inspirational that it’s inspired a poster. It’s been a long time since we’ve had one of those. What a wonderful time to be an American. And a speechwriter.
