This 8-Year-Old's Way With Words Will Leave You Speechless

Brace yourself: the clip picks up speed at 1:36.

8-year-old Madison Reid might not be a presidential candidate on an Aaron Sorkin show, but don't tell her that. After a recent interview with Cleveland, Ohio news station WKYC, it's clear she can do anything she sets her mind to.

The interview, about the importance of book-sharing movement Little Free Library, started off with evident enthusiasm from Reid. At about a minute and a half in, though, the interview transformed into a brilliantly dramatic speech in support of books and literacy, one that we're sure even the most eloquent of speechwriters would have been proud to have penned.  

Watch it below, and prepare to be wowed. Maybe we'll see Reid on television — or on a ballot — one day.
