scharrison's blog Comments Wow. Not a strong speaker. This is the first time I've heard him. I hope he does better on future outings. Odd ... he seemed to do very well at the SEC meeting Perhaps an off day .. or less prepared ??? Environmental Defense Fund http://signon.org/sign/an-end-to-gerrymandering I don't think it matters if I don't think it matters if he is a strong speaker or not, though I thought it sounded fine. The media isn't going to be airing any more that a few seconds of it if any.......unless he slips up and says something off the cuff that turns out to be contrroversial. So I think it is much more important that he has a well thought out script that he sticks to, even if it sounds a little clippy. Most of the coverage the press conferences will get will be from the print media so I think he accomplished what he needed to here. I'm a moderate Democrat. If he can overcome his tax If he can overcome his tax problems and win back the General Assembly then he should run for President. However, I think the opposition party will use his tax problems to "eviscerate" him. You might want to check out the comments on this thread ...
