History is Made: Biden Speech

By Andrew Ivey | Speeches

Mar 26

Vice-President Joe Biden had the job of introducing the President on Tuesday at the White House. In a glowing speech to an enthusiastic audience the Vice-President used the phrase, “History is Made,” six times to introduce Barack Obama.

The occasion was the symbolic signing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a historic piece of legislation that expands health insurance coverage to millions of Americans.

Drawing on the poet, Virgil, he noted:

“The greatest wealth is health: Today America becomes a whole lot wealthier.”

His four minute introduction steered clear of sycophancy but made the point: it’s a historic moment.
