I like Obama. He sure can debate well. I don't know what the hell I am going to do this election. Repos and Dems are so far apart now. Dems have gone way to liberal in some areas. I would like to see a good old fashioned Southern Democratic philosophy take hold in one of these candidates. My Grand father is buried in southern Il and it says "life long democrat" on his grave stone. He would roll over if he knew how far to the left his party has gone...

Anyway, I like Obama, but I'm not sold on anyone yet. McCain is a Repo I would vote for...

Ted "Mr. Potato Head" Kennedy speaks pretty well until the Chivas kicks in. Dubya - crappy speaker.

I dare say that being a good speaker isn't enough - there's something more required.
Jimmy Carter showed that you need more than just the ability to speak. That guy drove the train into the wall. He's done many good public acts since leaving office, but was not effective while in office.

I would say that both Clinton and Reagan had a way of making everybody feel more comfortable about stuff that was going on than most other Presidents I can remember.

Oh yeah, back on topic, you probably like Obama because he hasn't had to get too deep into the issues, and has kept most of his public appearances to outlets that won't challenge him (like Oprah). It's not just him, it seems to be the way all of them (Dem & Rep) are running it right now. It's very touchy-feely.
