Obama Berlin Speech: See Video, Photos, Full Speech Transcript: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/07/24/obama-in-berlin-video-of_n_114771.html Well, I have been there but so were 200 000 other people. So I had to follow the speech on a screen. I think I have to sleep a night other my impressions and think about what I have heard. Well, I will hold back my opinion as a political scientist for now, but allow me to make a personal statement: It takes balls to talk in front of 200 000 cynics who are cautiously examining every word you say and "buh" you into oblivion for any mistake you might make. It takes balls to walk the thin line of trying to appeal to the voters in America and to us self righteous Europeans at the same time. (Most Europeans probably didn't get how much risk he took for criticizing the USA). Well, I am quite interested what you fell and think about the speech in general.
