Before members of Congress, his Cabinet, Supreme Court justices, his wife, millions of Americans, and people around the world, President Obama delivered a speech Tuesday at the Capitol. Under glaring lights and the glare of global attention, he addressed the gloom of the economic crisis.
Though the president said the "day of reckoning has arrived," he assured Americans, "We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before."
