Four More Years

President Barack Obama
offered a message about the future.

“The election in November
is a choice between
two different paths for America;
two different visions for the future.”

“It will take more
than a few years
to solve challenges
built up over decades.”

The president drew cheers.
Four more years!
Four more years!

A very exciting Democratic Convention filled with rousing emotional speeches by Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, and Joe Biden.  Obama topped off the convention with a straightforward presentation.  This time he left the soaring rhetoric to others and instead gave a very presidential speech—exactly the speech he needed to give to build on the previous speeches.

Note: I put the president’s words in quotes, but I dropped a few words so it would scan better.
