Monday's Quote

Here's something to keep in mind as the current political campaigns wind down towards election day.  It's a line from Ted Sorenson (1928-2010), who was a key figure in the Kennedy administration:

"A speech is made great, not from the words used, but from the ideas conveyed. If the ideas, principles and values and substance of the speech are great, then it's going to be a great speech, even if the words are pedestrian. The words can be soaring, beautiful and eloquent but if the ideas are flat, empty or mean, it's not a great speech."
