Articulate? The great orator? Abraham Lincoln? FDR? The guy couldn't even hold Ronald Reagan's jockstrap. His speech was filled of cliches and tired bromides. "We have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states. We are and always will be the United States of America," -- read just like a high school essay. I don't see what's great about his staccato style of talking. You think this guy is going anywhere if he stayed at Occidental College? .
