一段好玩的文字

  以下文字摘自The NewYork Times 今天的一片文章《At Mrs. King’s Funeral, a Mix of Elegy and Politics 》其他的都是不怎么好玩的话,下面一段说Mr.Clinton 上台演讲的一段比较有意思。

  Of the four presidents, Mr. Clinton was the obvious favorite of the crowd. A
huge cheer went up as he reached the open area near Mrs. King’s coffin, and the
crowd gave him a thunderous standing ovation when he approached the microphone
with his wife, Senator Hillary
Rodham Clinton
.

  Mr. Clinton was followed by the far more formal remarks of Senator Clinton,
who until then had stood silently nodding her head as he spoke.

  Mr. Clinton began by saying, "I’m honored to be here with my president and my
former presidents." Then he paused briefly and gestured toward Mrs. Clinton, his
unspoken words seeming to suggest that he wanted to say future president, too.
When the crowd began cheering, Mr. Clinton laughed and said, "No, no, no."

  He delivered the longest speech of the four presidents, apparently without
notes. "I don’t want us to forget that there’s a woman in there," Mr. Clinton
said, pointing to Mrs. King’s coffin. "Not a symbol, a real woman who lived and
breathed and got angry and got hurt and had dreams and disappointments."
