The Making of a President

One and half a months have passed since I started my new job. I'm in Research Development and Foreign Affairs division at a university, and what I do mainly is calculating travel expenses and honorarium, announcing grants information for research, and taking care of visiting scholars. Also, the staff in the division has to make preparations for forums and seminars which are held inviting leaders in the field of politics and economics. I rather like my job because I can join there during working time.

I'm looking forward to the forum tomorrow because I might be able to listen to the talk by a person who was a foreign policy advisor for President-elect Barack Obama's campaign. It says that he would be the next U.S. ambassador to Japan.

President-Elect Barack Obama on Election Night

Full text: Obama's victory speech

"It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled - Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America."

"She was there for the buses in Montgomery, the hoses in Birmingham, a bridge in Selma, and a preacher from Atlanta who told a people that "we shall overcome". Yes, we can.
A man touched down on the Moon, a wall came down in Berlin, a world was connected by our own science and imagination. And this year, in this election, she touched her finger to a screen, and cast her vote, because after 106 years in America, through the best of times and the darkest of hours, she knows how America can change. Yes, we can."

His speech reminds me the ones by J. F. Kennedy. It seems that his speech writers are so young (26-30 years old), and one of them is under the instruction of Mr. Sorensen, the chief speech writer for Kennedy.

It is certain that Obama's inaugural address will be a historical one, and I couldn't wait for it on January 20th.
