Obama's speeches in word clouds
"Nation" was the most frequently used word, keeping with Obama's campaign theme of uniting the country. Here's one way he used it: "In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of shortcuts or settling for less."
Other prominent words include "today," "now," and "forward," all of which refer to the present and the future.
