Boston

President Obama is in many ways a gifted speaker; he handles himself well in front of large crowds, and he seems always ready with a nifty and memorable line. At the interfaith worship service in Boston only days after the horrid bombing, the president brought those in attendance to their feet when he said, “If they sought to intimidate us, to terrorize us,” and then he paused for dramatic effect, almost in the rhythmic way some ministers do, before delivering the great line, “it should be pretty clear right now they picked the wrong city to do it.” The Bostonians, of course, applauded enthusiastically, residents of a proud and historic city that was a leader in this country’s march to freedom.
