  •  The amazing thing about Clinton is... (10+ / 0-)

    ...not just his style, his ability to improvise, although that is significant. It is, and I say this having seen him speak live five times, his command of details, facts, intricacies that make those improvisations sing.

    Even when I am disagreeing with Clinton (and that happens often), I am astonished at the ease with which he calls up data that bolster his point of view. Certainly the best political speaker of my life-time and, I suspect, the best presidential speaker of all time.

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

    •  He's brilliant. He's a scholar. (7+ / 0-)

      Since republicans dominate the airwaves we're used to inarticulate shysters shyterizing their way through whatever the blather about, so when an Obama or a Clinton starts talking with details, facts, organization, coherence AND big words properly used, it is refreshing.

      This doesn't mean he's above doing really stupid things.....

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
