    speech leaves to

    "The speech didn't leave room for indiference either to his adherents or political oponents."

    Does this sentence make sence?

    Re: speech leaves to

    I'd prefer:
    "The speech didn't leave room for indiference either to his adherents or to his political oponents."
    "The speech didn't leave room for indiference to either his adherents orhis political oponents."

    It makes sense, though there are better ways of expressing the thought.
