Compare Obama vs. McCain's speeches about service using word clouds

Barack Obama's Speech
Below is a word cloud of Obama's commencement address at Wesleyan University on May 25, 2008, where he filled in for the ailing Senator Ted Kennedy. The theme of the speech was service for America.

(What is a word cloud?)

John S. McCain's Speech
Below is a speech that McCain gave in Jacksonville, FL. entitled, "Service to America" on April 3, 2008. It was considerably longer than Obama's, hence the word cloud density.
