and let me tell you, he is an very impressive person. He had a script but many time went off it and it was amazing. First of all for him to be so positive about life and the United States after all he has been through personally is something special and what he has accomplished for personal freedoms in the US is something every American should be proud of (and this is from a Canadian). The thing that is so annoying is that when you hear him speak you are thinking, ok that makes sense, and that makes sense, and there is another good idea but then realize that nothing will actually get done because of the gridlock in Washington. Too bad.
