Still the main appeal to ethos in the speech isn’t for Clinton, but for Obama instead. Throughout the speech, he presents information in a didactic tone to describe Obama’s achievements. Clinton’s speech appeals to ethos, pathos, and logos using the common place; at the same time, he refutes some of the Republican’s ideas. One of the dominant rhetorical tactic Clinton used was the commonplace. For example, the speech creates unity, a commonplace, by the use of pronouns.
Bill Clinton's speech was to apologize to America for having an affair with white house intern Monica Lewinsky. Aristotle created modes of persuasion through literary devices called Ethos pathos and logos. Ethos meaning the appeal to ethics. This is gaining the credibility of the piece. Pathos is the appeal to emotion.
Lastly, the word choice and imagery in Hillary Clinton’s speech at the end convinces the audience that Hillary Clinton is the best choice for President. By stating that “we need to make sure that they can be proud of us”, Clinton introduces a sense of accountability and duty to the audience, going against the notion that one person’s vote does not matter. Also, the use of the pronoun “we” makes it seem like Clinton shares a common interest with the rest of America and thus is a figure that can be trusted. In order to convince the audience that Clinton is a patriot and has the support of many Americans, the speech is shown as taking place in front of a large, cheering crowd of people with American flags. The combined effect of this word choice and imagery is that Clinton is portrayed as a down-to-earth patriot who cares deeply about the future of the country.
Rhetorical Analysis of Obama’s Victory Speech Barack Obama was re-elected as the president of the US on November 6, 2012 from Chicago, Illinois. This paper will throw light and analyse various elements Barrack Obama is using to portray his political ideology to audiences through his speech. I intend to focus on the rhetorical effects of the speech. By using various form of rhetorical tools such as Tautology or Anaphora, President Obama gives a speech which focuses on the idea of American life such as the American dream, American promise and the future. His speech is similar to the one he gave in 2008 and contains repetition and conveys his political views.
Early Enlightenment thinker John Locke presented to the society documents which championed inalienable rights including life, liberty, and property. Liberty in specific becomes a most crucial topic in the debate deciding what conditions the state should prohibit speech offensive to some groups. Much later, John Stuart Mill built upon and constructed reformed ideas that contrasted the early enlightenment and would then be known as the Mature Enlightenment. In his works now classified as neoclassical utilitarianism- he was an avid follower of Jeremy Bentham, the father of Classical Utilitarianism- Mill also presents invaluable perspectives which can be used to discuss the debate While Locke’s philosophy would justify that speech can be banned
The system may seem confusing or unnecessary, but its importance is revealed by the care taken by the Founding Fathers in designing the Electoral College, which was described in more detail and at greater length than any other issue addressed in the Constitution (Guelzo and Hulme). Despite this, many still call for a shift to a popular vote system for the presidential election; however, such a change would be a mistake. The Electoral College should not be abolished and replaced by a popular vote because it is necessary to uphold the structure of the United States government, to protect the interests of the whole nation, and to preserve the integrity of the presidential election. Opponents of the Electoral College frequently argue that the Electoral College is outdated to the point of becoming obsolete, that it contradicts America’s identity as a democracy, and that it gives too much power to states with a small population. Critics of the Electoral College condemn it as a relic of a bygone era.

A Public Sector Efficiency Bureau is set up as a department of the newly crafted Ministry of Financial Services, Good Governance and Institutional Reform (Govt. Programme 2015-19). If it sounded just as the usual rhetoric from a new government, the 2015-2016 Budget Speech reiterated this determination after finding out that the country’s system for transparency and good governance to be also at the crossroad. Instead of staying idle with the present system characterised by opacity that breeds corruption, the government calls to go out for a cleansing that will inject more meritocracy, transparency, good governance in the management of public affairs (Budget Speech, 2015). The Mauritian government can be said to be moving away from the traditional form of Public Administration by adopting a modern approach, guided by the international imperatives, needs and trends.
