President Obama’s 2008 Democratic Nomination Victory Speech — Law & Politics Blog 5– 2/10/17

Proper organization of speech allows for an orator to communicate with his audience and provide rhetorical truth adequately. Speech, introduces what the speaker is going to discuss provides facts and support of their argument, reviewing the facts, opposing arguments, ethical, emotional, logical appeals, and then conclusions. President Obama in June 2008 accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. His speech is an excellent example of the proper organization of a speech and the parts of speech. He begins his speech recounting the details as to why he is giving the speech to the audience and thanking them for the opportunity, for the nomination, and for the chance to run for president. The concept of catching the audience up reminds them of the hard work done in the past, but also provides examples of why they should continue. President Obama then continues by discussing his opponent, John McCain and why he is a better-fitted candidate and provides examples, a counter argument. Then makes appeals to reason emotionally, ethically, and logically. His speech is to an audience that is friendly towards his topics, so he does not need to convince his audience. He celebrates hard work done already and plans for the hard work down the road.
