The RFK Speech: April 5, 1968

The movie, Bobby, now on DVD, was not very good. Emilio Estevez tried very hard to make an epic, generational film, and for the most part failed with bad acting, and bad writing. But this ending, which takes from RFK's speech after MLK was shot, is chilling. And while I am as cynical as they come regarding the words of politicians, taken into context -- recall this was just after MLK was shot, and only five years after this man's brother was shot -- this is one of the great political speeches of all time.
