The Audacity of Hope

Barack Obama

Overview

Have you ever seen the speech that made Barack Obama president? First off, it wasn't any of the speeches he delivered during his campaign. Not during the presidential debate, or the inaugural address. The speech that really made Obama President of the United States was given long before he ever announced to run.

In 2004, Obama spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Boston, during John Kerry's presidential campaign. His keynote address, entitled "The Audacity of Hope" was by far the best speech of the convention. The then-senator was suddenly famous. This speech put him on the map as a serious presidential candidate.

The phrase 'audacity of hope' is one Obama picked up from his former pastor, who gave a sermon about a George Frederic Watts painting called 'Hope' in 1990. The Audacity Of Hope expanded on his ideas from the speech, and laid out the topics that would then become the foundation for his presidential campaign in 2008.
