Political and Social commentary by a gang of people in fly over country.
Maybe. Lincoln's Gettysburg Address comes damn close.Assuming you don't take the first part of the Declaration of Independents as a speech. If you do, it wins.For the 21st century, so far, let me quote the whole of what I think is the best."Let's Roll"Todd Beamer, Sept 11, 2001.
I could quibble, and argue that the American Civil War was a civil war, and hence a speech pertaining to it was not a foreign policy speech, but I won't. Especially since you could reply that Henry spoke over a year before July 4, 1776, and that the Revolution was still a civil war. Flip a coin. I was tempted to claim that this was the best foreign policy speech ever, but then I remembered that Bill made it up, and that Hank never actually said it.
