We all know Obama’s a great speaker. Some would even say speeches are the extent of his abilities. Yet a feature in New York’s Summer Issue (you know, the cover with McCain and Obama on the beach fist-bumping like the homies they are?) argues the significance behind Obama’s rhetorical strength. According to the article, the nation is run by words and deserves a leader who can formulate complex thought into articulate verse – which, if previous leaders (slash) contenders have demonstrated, ain’t easy.
