I liked the speech a lot; it really did a good job of recalling the history of progressivism (quick checks of Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall... alliterative, too); and it listed all the ways in which progressivism still needs to labor. "A never ending journey," as he put it.
And as he did that, he pushed the concept that we can't stop investing in our future, otherwise we get left behind. A clear argument against haphazard spending cuts.
