Every body knows that Barack Obama’s eloquence was the main factor for which he won the election for the presidency of the United States of America in 2008.
A population with more than 300 millions, 72 percent white and 13 percent black people with hard memories of slavery and colored discrimination for this minority.
It was unthinkable that an African descendant could reach to the highest stage of this nation in such short period of time.
They way he speaks to his audience, the words he uses, the combination of nouns and adjectives at the proper time are the main characteristics that converted him in president.
Suitable words that vibrate the heart of the people.
In this page will try to show some singularities about his style that will help you understand his victory.
Another characteristic is the the addition of poetic rhythms that deliver excitement to audiences thirsty of emotions.
“…endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.”
“wrong side of history” Obama likes to use this expression very often. See https://search.whitehouse.gov/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&affiliate=wh&query=wrong+side+of+history&commit=Search
“But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions…” This another expression commonly used by Obama. See it at https://search.whitehouse.gov/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&affiliate=wh&query=standing+pat&commit=Search
“…timeless words..” This figure is better assimilated than a plain use of one of them. See other uses at https://search.whitehouse.gov/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&affiliate=wh&query=TIMELESS+WORDS
“…era of responsibility…” We suppose that the use of “era” is superfluous. Has there ever been an era of “irresponsibility” in the history of USA? The combination impact the effect of a sole word.

“great gift….” gift accompanied with “great” is also used very often to give deepness to his words.
