Hillary: Speeches Are Great, Empowerment Is Better
by Jeff Dinelli
This snippet from Sen. Hillary Clinton's speech at the General Motors auto assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio yesterday struck me as quite poignant and worth thinking about:
"Speeches don't put food on the table. Speeches don't fill up your tank. Speeches don't fill your prescriptions.
"My opponent makes speeches. I offer solutions. It's one thing to get people excited. I want to empower you."
At UW-Madison, President Clinton picked up on this theme a little later.
