    Abraham Lincoln.  I would love to hear him give the Gettysburg Address.  That would be something.

    Then I would not have to count on anyone trying to interpret what he said.

    I am not a big fan speeches, but I'm pretty sure Siddhartha could offer some words of wisdom I would never forget. ^_^

    I really don't think I could narrow it to one.
    If we are talking about in person, the first that comes to mind is Ronald Reagan. He was a great orator and he said things that made sense and were compelling.
    Others, in no particular order:

    Martin Luther King
    Winston Churchill
    Thomas Jefferson
    Martin Luther
    Peter Marshall

    I would love to hear an inspiring speech from Winston Churchill, also I would love to hear Richard Burton or David Attenborough make a speech as they both have interesting voices.

    I would like to hear from Henry V. When he commanded the numerically inferior English army at the Battle of Agincourt he must have given a great speech to inspire his men to hold fast against the massed armies of the French.
