the moment I understand why Americans need President Obama

President Obama's speech at the memorial service in Tucson walks a fine line. He mentions the victims' individual stories. He cannot pass himself off as using this tragedy for his political agenda. He cannot be superficial like some liberals who just tell people to calm down. He is even uncharacteristically religious, even mentioning (rightly, I think) Job. I feel that he knows what is like to be an American very much. It is easy to criticize him from both sides and it is sometimes necessary to do so. But when I see something like this, I cannot help admiring him.
