    That's an impressive list, but I would say Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech is the most famous speech of all time.

    Check it out on youtube.

    Eugene Debs "While there is a lower class, I am in it" speech at a Union rally in 1918 is also very powerful.

    And then there is General Patton's memorable speech to the US troops before D Day.

    again, check it out on youtube, you will find it both inspiring and funny!

    i think Franklin D Roosevelt he was an amazing person and a GREAT speaker. or Sen. Robert LaFollette "Fighting Bob" he was a great progressivist (is that the right word? 'progressivist'.) He had very progressive ideas.

    or how about George Bush he's a really good speaker!

    that was a joke, Bush is a blabbering idiot.

    FDR. Great man, and I'm right leaning.

    Don't buy into that he knew about Pearl Harbor beforehand.
