Response to Cyrano (Original post)

23. I don't think her statement will be what's remembered but I agree with her

I think a historic statement that will stick will be one that basically stands alone with little or no explanation. One that is repeated until it makes it into the general lexicon. My examples are:

One small step for man, one giant step for mankind.

Speak softly and carry a big stick

A date which will live in infamy

9/11

The buck stops here

At long last, have you no sense of decency

What did the President know and when did he know it.

Of course Rachelís statement could make it into our historic lexicon, but it would have to be used and written about for a while. I donít see a historical reference to it which is a common theme in the examples above.
