Over a cup of tea, I finally hear Obama's victory speech. Is it my sleep-deprived imagination or does it sound an awful lot like John F. Kennedy's 1961 Inaugural? And is it out of order to remember that Kennedy's sweeping proclamation ("Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.") was not a message of international concilation, but a sharp warning to enemies and a commitment that America would lead its allies?
