All opinion and emotions. There have been many individuals with high education 
placed in cabinets before. Hopefully they will be smart and have common sense. 
Having worked with many PhDs and MBAs through the years, education does not 
always translate to being smart. One can be intelligent but very dumb at the 
same time.

An important quality of President Obama is his high level of education, and his 
placement of individuals with high education in his cabinet.

His speeches made him famous before he ran for the highest office.

He appears as more decent than most previous presidents in the USA.

Marvin,



As a long time Toastmaster and one who has done a good deal of public speaking, 
the art of public speaking is to know you audience and get ALL your points 
across. You paint a picture, use a theme if you can, use simple language, and 
draw emotions. BO did this very well. He is a very good speaker and knows how 
to engage an audience. 

As to what people remember, the max is 5 items based on a Bell Labs study from 
the 1940s. This is why the old phone numbers read like Elgin 1 -2345. "Elgin 1" 
was considered one item (or number) followed by 4 others. This of course has 
changed with tel numbers being all numeric nowadays.

Someone mentioned that Obama's speeches are light on content. I would like to 
mention that effective public speaking is often just making one or two points, 
since that's all the average Joe can handle.
