11/03/2006:"Presidential Speeches, Technorati Style"
Chirag Mehta, whoever he is, has put together this very cool tool to view word frequency in presidential speeches. Use the slider control to move through different presidents and time periods to see what the hot buzzwords were for different eras. You'll see a lot of the words "economic" and "freedom", but you'll also see different words emphasized during different cabinets. Interestingly, Clinton was one of the only ones to emphasize "deficit", and Nixon barely mentioned "Vietnam". Probably because the hippies were doing it for him...(See del.icio.us or technorati if you're not familiar with "word clouds")
