Obama's Speech to Muslims in Cairo

This is the speech that Obama gave in Cairo today. Without doubt, Obama is THE most effective communicator of modern times. I have rarely seen anyone who can articulate extremely complex concepts, diametrically opposite viewpoints and address differences and similarities as effectively as he can. Here is speaks fearlessly about what the both sides need to do in no unclear words and yet comes off as a conciliator.

I remember listening to Senate Majority Leader, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), while he described Obama’s performance in the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. After Obama’s speech, Reid congratulated him, and Obama – not with pride or arrogance, but with humility firm in his understanding of his strengths, replied “I have a gift”. Without a doubt, he has a gift of speaking the right things, with the right nuances, and with the right tone.

I think the speech was very well articulated and delivered. What do you think?
