Einzige,

A point well taken, but even President Bush is not that terrible of a public speaker. His way of speaking is his own tpye of "folsky", and that obviosly worked in two (or at least one) national election.

Alright, then.



(For the record, I actually like G.H.W. much better than either his immediate predecessor or his  son, but you can't say the man was anything but a lackadaisical public speaker, at best. For that matter, I'd question the attractiveness of a 'folksy' style of speaking to anybody other than a certain species of Southerner - one which, in the context of this thread, would probably see the same thing in Warner they saw in Dubya.)
