These three appeals make the speech livelier and let the listener or reader connect with the speaker. Ethos is an appeal that deals with the speakers’ credibility. The President makes the first appeal to ethos in the beginning of the paragraph by stating, “I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed and mindful for the sacrifices borne by our ancestors.” He just telling us that he is thankful to us that we have elected him as our president to tackle all the problems that his country is facing. There was another statement that really built his ethos. He mentioned that there was once a time when a black man, like his father, would not be served in public restaurants.
Leadership Transformational-charismatic Before the election, President Barack Obama attracted the attention of American's and foreigners alike with a seemingly charismatic nature. A charismatic leader has an uncanny ability to draw others to his side and move them to accomplish a cause bigger than themselves. A charismatic approach is transformational if it invokes a permanent change in the people who embrace the leader's vision. During his first term, President Obama wooed at least some to his vision by showing the potential to make a huge difference in both domestic and foreign affairs. Cross-Cultural-Global Leadership Under the Bush Administration, America's image lost much of its shine.
Abraham Lincoln Born near Hodgenville, Kentucky. on February 12, 1809, Lincoln was the central figure of the Civil War, and is regarded by many historians and laymen as not only the foremost of our presidents but also the greatest American of all time. With scant formal education, from a poor family, this frontier lawyer held the nation together through the worst crisis in its history. A leader of weaker will or fainter vision might well have failed either to win the Civil War or end the institution of slavery. With good reason, he is viewed as the savior of the American union and the "Great Emancipator."
Since the first president, George Washington, took office on April 30, 1789, there have been forty-two different men chosen by the citizens of our country to lead and govern us as a nation (The White House). Though all of these men have had differences, one common ground they have all shared is their color, they have all been white. But, the 2008 presidential election forever changed our nation’s highest office, when for the first time in our country’s history, a man of color, African-American Barack Obama, was elected President of the United States. This historical induction has made the 2008 presidential election one of the most important in our nation’s history not only in terms of its racial significance, but also for many other implications it has had, and will have. This election has touched on multiple sociological issues ranging from gender, with vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, to the state and direction of our current economy (the “recession” crises), to other such sociological issues as religion, class, and even national security.
In the United States the president’s international policies have been vitally important in determining how successful their presidency has been. The duration of their international policies, along with its amount of support from both the public and congress have a great impact on the president, as well as their domestic policies as they can affect the length of their term and the popularity of the presidency. This can be seen through the last three US presidents: Bill Clinton (1993-2001), George W Bush (2001-2009), and Barack Obama (2009-now). After the fall of the Soviet Union and at the end of the cold war, President Clinton came into office. Just before Clinton’s administration, President Bush had sent troops to Somalia in order to safe guard relief supplies in a time of famine and civil war.

Political Power of America 9/11/14 On November 19, 1863, the most famous speech ever given by President Abraham Lincoln was called the Gettysburg Address. This was known as a "monumental act." With this speech, Lincoln defined democracy as “government of the people, by the people, for the people”. That means that the government should be basically running by its citizens.

Amidst excessive political television advertisements and larger-than-life billboard signs, Election Day brings forth the major topics of concerns of the American public. Voters ultimately end up choosing the candidate who they believe will have the solution to all of the nation’s problems.
