Hi Sherry,
You discovered an interesting example from Obama. You have justified your points, providing supportive reasoning behind your thoughts. You were able to link theory with practical application and real-world settings. However, remember that in an inductive argument, you cannot guarantee the conclusion. A deductive argument follows the if “this” than “that” format, so it must be true. Please see my attached comments regarding 1 premise/conclusion issue, 1 strict/loose, and 3 in part IIa. I would suggest the following to improve the professional nature of your work: Please always include a proper title page. In the top half of the page, centered and double-spaced, include: title of the paper, your first and last name, course number and name, instructor name, and date of submission. Please review the rubric and comments, which have been made directly in your attached paper. Keep working hard. I look forward to your next assignment. Best,

Prof. Trojanowski
