Those of us who were in the room know how powerful Van's speech was. I especially loved the powerful moment when a young man stood up during Q&A and asked "How can you insure that I get one of those green jobs?" Part of Van's response was to say that the people who could make that guarantee were in the room with us.

Awesome stuff!

Yes, that was a very good speech.

He generally has a wonderful way of making the individual feel part of something much larger than himself.

Great post.
