Annals of rhetoric

Here's a Democratic presidential candidate with a message of hope:
[The Democratic Party] will never be indolent, as long as it looks forward and not back, as long as it commands the allegiance of the young and the hopeful who dream the dreams and see the visions of a better America and a better world.
That's from the 1952 nomination acceptance speech of Adlai Stevenson, great orator and twice-losing candidate.
