Senator Obama: Echoes of President Kennedy

I was watching Senator Obama speak at a rally in Texas.  He mentioned JFK’s “never fear to negotiate” statement.  It reminded me of this:

      Above all, words alone are not enough. The United States is a peaceful nation. And where our strength and determination are clear, our words need merely to convey conviction, not belligerence. If we are strong, our strength will speak for itself. If we are weak, words will be of no help.

JFK never delivered that speech.  Obama is often compared to JFK, and I get the similarity.  I also get the differences.  I’m a Republican, so I’m disappointed that my party has nobody like Obama.  It looks like Senator McCain will have his hands full.
