The summer of 1979 was a critical moment in Jimmy Carter's presidency: An energy crisis was creating mile-long gas lines, suburban riots were breaking out across America, and the White House was racked by internal struggle. Amid low morale and even lower ratings, Carter delivered the speech of his career. Honest and urgent, it should have earned a place in history alongside Lincoln's Gettysburg Address or FDR's First Inaugural. Instead, it led to his political downfall.
