Shoot! I have my stuttering John moments, so I'm not knocking the man. But I was watching the CNN Democratic Debates last night and I couldn't get over Barack Obama's speech.
It's funny, because the early buzz on Obama was that he was "smart and articulate." Smart? Oh yes! But articulate? Not so much! Forget anything I've written on this blog before. I'm rooting for the guy. And if everything goes according to plan, come November, I will be taking my
ass to the booth for the first time ever.
But frequently hearing "ehhhh" and seing Obama repeatedly hesitate during the debates, I couldn't help but wonder if his speech lowered his appeal at all. I mean, he's hands down the most charismatic and funniest candidate on either side, but Hillary, John Edwards and even them fart ass republicans seem to have more of a smooth cadence when they speak. See for yourself.
What do you guys think? Has anyone else noticed that Barack's speech could be smoother? And if so, does it even matter? Speak on it!
