Not that I’m happy about US foreign policies, not that I thought ANYone could do much to change it. But I did celebrate Obama’s election, and that year we read his Election Speech in class, and listened to it, and then we read his biography, all of which was interesting.

Now I’m posting this in case you’ve never heard Obama speak, his accent and his way of wording things. He’s very articulate. Take notes and do share your retelling of this, and your views in class (or here!) 🙂 ❤

Challenge: can you hear “trade-offs”? In what context? What does it mean?
