HE IS CERTAINLY A GOOD SPEAKER, CHARISMATIC, AND INSPIRATIONAL. HE HAS VERY CREATIVE PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH HIM. CAN HE HANDLE THE LARGEST JOB IN THE WORLD?

I've not read Aristotle [nor Pluto!] for several decades, maybe I should brush up a bit.
Cheers

interesting.
if I were to pick it would be with the we we we...

Thanks for the post. Aristotle's conceptions of rhetoric definitely come into play, don't they? As much as logos, ethos, pathos, I think now Obama's got an audience. (One of my favorite rhetoric watchers, The Bloggora, is part of that growing audience). I love what you relay from the NYT, especially the Mac v PC analogy. What will super Tuesday (and the caucus voters) bring us?

From this week's New Yorker:

"A strong hand on the wheel won’t make a difference if your car is stuck in the mud; a good leader has to persuade enough people to get out and push."

Interesting concept here. I like J.C.'s quote.

Maybe Sarah Palin will put muscle in the meat of the speech, rhetorically speaking. I just watched her speech delivery at the Republican National Convention. She has kick. The ethos and pathos of it all this political season has made speeches more important and rhetoric something to study, seriously.
