Helpful: Speechifying well

I don't have a profound way to say it, but it is really amazing to have a president again who is intelligent and makes sense when he speaks.

During the campaign, people mocked Obama for being "eloquent," or just "a guy who can give great speeches." What they ignored (or pretended to ignore) is that words matter. Speeches matter, because the performance and the language can convey much more than just ideas. Here's this week's video address from the next President. Doesn't it seem like he knows what he's doing?

It's so refreshing to have a president who can actually speak.
