Clinton was good.

In Chinese the de sound is pronounced more like "duh". Certainly not doo. I wonder where the VAs got that one from.

You can hear the Chinese pronunciation here:

The easiest way for a native English speaker to pronounce that closely to how a native Chinese speaker would is to say "Vuu-Daa". On this note, it's good to quote this:
Traditional Chinese schools of martial arts often dealt with the study of martial arts not just as a means of self-defense or mental training, but as a system of ethics. Wude (武德) can be translated as "martial morality" in which ‘martial’ means ‘Wu’ and ‘morality’ denotes ‘de’. Wude deals with two aspects; "morality of deed" and "morality of mind".

Morality of deed concerns social relations and consists of the character of Humility, Sincerity, Politeness, Loyalty and Trust.

Morality of mind is meant to cultivate the inner harmony between the emotional mind and the wisdom mind. It includes the concepts of Courage, Patience, Endurance, Perseverance and Will. The ultimate goal is reaching no extremity where both wisdom and emotions are in harmony with each other.

This can be used in both Chinese and Japanese in lieu of English terms such as "soldierly virtue", "good conduct" (military), "warrior ethics", and being honourable in regards to any fight or competition.

Basically, "wude" is what this forum is missing.

Honestly, I would rather have Obama in office than Romney. A lot of what Clinton had said during that speech made a ton of sense, but then again that's my personal opinion. He was always a good speaker and it seemed pretty candid and down to earth. It's always fun to watch both Republican n Democratic conventions n the people's reactions. IT's like a bunch of sheeple responding positively to everything they say.

Just for the sake of not having Obama anymore.

I never voted for him in the first place either.
