提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
HW

Coming up .What grade would you give yourself for this year?
And later .How do you balance power when your husband is the most powerful person in the world?
You just got be really confident.

Ready? Set, go.
Three, two, one.

So every day you sit behind the same desk that John F. Kennedy sat; you walk the halls where Abraham Lincoln walked, I understand we’re in the room where Thomas Jefferson used to have his lunch in this room. Do you feel the, some kind of connection to the lineage of American presidents; it’s a very small club that you are the 44th member of.

You know, I draw inspiration from them, I study the decisions they made, because there are some principles that they established, that I think live on through the ages. I remain too humbled by my circumstances to compare myself to them but I think that, you know when I look at the decisions that I have to make; there is an awesome responsibility to the job.

Well, this is going to air two days after you travel from Oslo and receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Two weeks ago, you announced the American public that you are sending 30,000 troops into Afghanistan. How do you reconcile the two?

The United States is in a unique position in the world. We are the world's sole military superpower at this point. And I think that we are expected to keep or help keep a just peace around the world. What I have repeated to the American people in announcing this additional complement of troops is that this is not a war that the United States ask for, this is a direct response to 3 thousand of our citizens being viciously murdered, my goal is not to occupy a country or to impose our will on a country, but rather to simply help stabilize a country so that it is not breeding chaos that is then directed at us.
