English Lesson of the Day: Anaphora

Interested in learning more about Barack Obama's speaking and writing style? Listen to this 2004 Eight Forty-Eight interview with DePaul English Professor Gerald Mulderig.

[Full disclosure: I'm currently taking Mulderig's class, during which we studied the style elements of Obama's 2004 and 2008 DNC speeches. Remarked the Prof. after we heard his final comment, "Thank God I said that."]
