By using many quotes, statistics, and descriptive details Clarke makes the writing complete. It’s as if he gives a little taste of everything, but that miniscule amount is sufficient to feed one’s imagination. Clarke really makes a homerun, his purpose to demonstrate how well Kennedy’s speech was and how/why it was successful, also to demonstrate the genuine president that Kennedy was; in which he clearly accomplishes. Personally never paid much attention to any president’s speech nor wanted to read it, but after reading “Why JFK’s Inaugural Succeeded”, the motivation and very enthusiasm to read Kennedy’s speech was unavoidable. Amazingly an author can really engage his/her audience, but that really takes a lot.
I chose this speech for its significance in history, as well as its influence on Nixon’s political standing at the time. He was a very powerful public speaker, as well as running mate and Vice President for Dwight Eisenhower. Nixon makes very powerful points though out his entire speech to show that he is in the right, and the charges against him and his party are being wrongfully made. Nixon’s greatest quality as a public speaker is his ability to sway the crowd with his charisma, and sincerity. His speech reached the people, and made them listen.
is one of the best. The qualities of sensational leaders are firm commitment to and exponentially growth in the cause they are fighting, lack of progress without their presence, and vivid memories and praise even after they pass. Martin Luther King, Jr. possessed impressive leadership qualities. Not only Americans but also citizens of other countries still look to his ideas for inspiration. He was the most courageous and dedicated leader during the civil rights struggle, and his leadership impacted millions.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, is considered by many Americans to be on of the greatest presidents in America’s history. People who were around during his presidency still admire him, but even people who were very young or not even alive during his presidency still hold him in high regard. While he may have made some mistakes in his presidency, people mainly remember him as a young, charismatic leader who bravely handled crises such as the Cuban Missile Crisis and helped advance America’s space program. He was considered a charismatic speaker and a great communicator. He spoke with passion but stated his ideas simply, allowing him to appear very bright but still appealing to the average American.
“He was a very accomplished American leader, at the end of a generation of leaders who could operate largely on their own". He was still an American Hero but also human. Unlike MacArthur, Dwight D. Eisenhower was liked by many. “I like Ike” was a famous slogan during the Presidency of Dwight Eisenhower. He won the votes of many because he was warm-hearted, friendly and idealistic man.
General Douglas MacArthur was one of America’s most accomplished and popular generals. He was a very important, powerful person that is still today one of America’s greatest leaders in history. MacArthur came from a wealthy background, born into a military family that was very high up and was very well connected which meant there were high expectations of him from an early age. There were many significant factors in MacArthur’s life that helped him become such a successful general. His involvement at West Point, the Korean War and his service during WW2 were major events that made MacArthur so popular and powerful.
His history has become a part of America’s history. Dwight D. Eisenhower will live on in history as long as the world values its freedom fighters and great men. After researching and reading about David Dwight Eisenhower, I have learned a lot. I believe that Eisenhower was one of the greatest presidents we ever had. Eisenhower's greatest strength as a General was his ability to get all the other big leaders of the western allies to form a consensus.
An example of a good speech is the one presented by Martin Luther King Jr. His speech impacted millions of Americans and is still shared and remembered today. One of the main characteristics that stand out about his speech is his powerful, confident voice. It is loud, which grabs the listener’s attention immediately. He also combines a good use of word pronunciation and long, dramatic pauses which gives the listener time to process and take in what Martin Luther King Jr. is trying to say. The strength in his voice tells the listener that he is confident about what he is talking about which is very important or no one would listen to what he had to say.
