Speech Clouds: Obama vs. Cheney

Today is a perfect day to compare speech clouds - two prominent figures from opposing ideologies on the same subject. Thanks to Wordle, my cloud generator of choice these days.

Here's President Obama's remarks on security today at the National Archives:

And here's Vice President Cheney's remarks on the same topic today at the American Enterprise Institute:

Some quick observations, but then I'll ask for input from others: I see "Guantanamo" in President Obama's speech but not Vice President Cheney's, while I see "9/11" in Vice President Cheney's speech and not President Obama's. "People" is the most prominent word in the President's speech while "Terrorists" is the most prominent word in the Vice President's speech.

Insert your own thoughts here.
