The Speech.

Joe Sudbay sums it up nicely...
That was a President.
Yes, it was. A President the likes of which we haven't seen for a long time, like lots of y'all have never seen. Or, as David Gergen suggests, like none of us have ever seen…

The first half of the speech was FDR fighting for the New Deal. The second half was Lyndon Johnson fighting for the Great Society and we have never seen those two presidents rolled together in quite this way before.
It's been a long time coming.
