JFK's inaugural address was very inspirational and these are just some important factors that I found to be interesting. His speech used strong words but they were very understandable. It would have been a joy to actually experience being there for this speech.

All in all, I believe that Obama’s message and general purpose of calling Congress to action was successful. In conclusion, I believe Obama’s State of Union address was flawless in the terms of his vocal variety, his content strength and the way he presented possible solutions of problems to his audience. His speech was tailored to address congress as well as secondary audience, the rest of the nation.
The speech given by Wendell Phillips at the Cooper Institute in 1861 was one of the more effective speeches in history. The strategies that he utilizes help solidify his opinion and give him leverage to successfully sway the audience to his intellectual viewpoint. His passion for social justice and sharp wit also help give his speech a sharp, precise tone that works very well to iterate his viewpoint. It is his oratory strategies, however; like his brave comparisons, his use of strong figurative language, his connotation-packed diction and his keen incorporation of relevant and intriguing fact, that caused his speech to be so powerful and effective. Throughout his speech, Mr. Phillips draws very effective but risky parallels that help him establish his admiration of Toussaint Louverture.
At first glance, before reading the text, the reader’s eye is drawn to the words “NYT Critics’ Pick”, which immediately gives the author strong credibility since The New York Times is well known as a prestigious newspaper.

Scott further persuades the reader of his knowledge by using ethos such as, providing examples of previous space travel films and discussing how Gravity differs. Scott doesn’t just simply summarize the film with critiques, he makes the reader feel as though they’re experiencing the film right alongside him. The reader’s mind goes wild trying to imagine how it would feel in space from all the imagery and examples he delivers.
The consistent use of emotional language throughout the speech inspires in the audience a feeling of pride and responsibility that makes the address all the more effective. The organization of the speech increases its ability to relate to the audience. Starting off on a personal note and ending with a wide appeal to the whole nation, the address both establishes credibility and motivates the spectators. However, it is Kennedy 's ability to judge the mood of his audience and analyze the context of the times that is ultimately responsible for the success of this great and classic
Many Americans consider JFK to be the greatest U.S. president of all time for a number of reasons. It was because of his hard work, dedication, charisma, respect, and understanding that made him such a great and influential icon. Through his military service, congressional career, and presidential career, JFK was able to motivate and influence people through a period of drastic change and to an extent hardship.

These people stand out in society due to their extreme success in life. Malcolm informs his readers about how talented outliers are, and how they are born being the most intelligent human beings on Earth.

It showed the many accomplishments that Jefferson had throughout his life. Norman K. Risjord described the outcome of the book in a very positive way. It seems almost that Norman K. Risjord admired and looked up to Thomas Jefferson and his life. Portraying the book in a positive way is only way one can describe things such as free, self-governed country, and a unified nation. I believe that Norman Risjord’s intent for having written this book was to "acquaint the general reader with the man and his times."
Rollason persuaded his audience well, not only because he is trusted given his credentials, and the few disciplines he used but also through the numerous examples he gave using Poe and Dylan’s work, other scholars’ works, Dylan’s words and even in quoting his previous work. The topic of choice for Rollason’s article was interesting, considering my love for Poe’s work and my appreciation of Dylan’s, I thought it a very well written and enjoyable article.

In this speech he assures the public that the country will survive and thrive, he explains, “This great nation will endure, […] will revive and will prosper.”** The tone in which he gave this speech was mainly to engage the public, creating a bond, sense of trust, and mood of excitement that he would help solve the problem of the Depression. In his speech, Roosevelt also utilizes the words, ‘we’ and ‘our’ to his advantage. As Teten suggests he used the words even more so throughout his presidency any other predecessors. ** This shows the type of leader Roosevelt wanted to be seen as, not one above everyone else, but one of the people. A great deal of Roosevelt’s popularity and influence was due to his ability to engage with the public and create a ubiquitous sense of unity throughout America.
