Obama’s Victory Speech
Obama’s Victory Speech has impressed the whole world. Obama have used a lot of techniques which make people in the USA believe in him and make them feel united. In this essay of Obama’s victory speech, I will explain some of the techniques Obama uses and for what purpose. Besides that I will comment on important and meaningful quotes.
Obama’s Victory Speech is separated in a lot of small sections. After finishing one section of his speech, he makes a long dramatic pause. That makes the speech very intimate.

Obama also shows his great love for his one and only wife Michelle.” Let me say this publicly: Michelle, I have never loved you more. I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you, too, as our nation’s first lady.” He doesn’t make this romantic declaration just to show he isn’t afraid of showing Michelle how much he love her in front of the whole world, but he also shows that he appreciate the hard work she have put into the campaign, and also to show that everybody should recognize her as an important figure for America. The first lady in the USA has a great responsibility, for being a kind of role model. The first lady is often volunteering in support for poor areas for example. So by those words Obama really wants everybody in America to love her.
“But that doesn’t mean your work is done” In this quote Obama really make it personal for his listeners, by telling the audience that it is also your job to make the USA a greater country.
