    I give her tons of credit. I don’t know how anyone can give a major speech every single day. She’s a very good public speaker too.

    I’ll admit there was a time I believed grudgingly that Obama was a good public speaker (during the primaries) but when I listen to him now I get the same feeling I get when I am being lectured to by my profs. He shows very little emotion and he sucks with a teleprompter. So I really don’t think he’s a good public speaker except in a more informal rally type environment- then he seems more impassioned. It’s a problem because he’s not a good messenger for his policies and the GOP are chewing the dems up and spitting them out.

      I totally agree. Plus, he reaaaallllly sucks at press conferences, where he can come across as childing and arrogant (“You guys expect immediate results, right? Isn’t that right? these things are supposed to happen yesterday” — he’s addressing reporters here).

      I agree, as well. I actually never understood his appeal as a speaker. To me, any politician’s speech (really, any person’s speech) is only impressive to the extent it’s backed up by action. Just never saw any action in the IL State House or the US Senate to back up the rhetoric…
