Watched Bill Clinton's speech last night at the Democratic National Convention. Whether you like Bill or not, you have to admit- the man can flat communicate. He is an incredible speaker. His pauses, tone, inflection, facial expressions, and body language are all extremely engaging. For me, watching Ronald Reagan was similar- he could draw me in and keep my attention whether he was talking about foreign policy or discussing the weather. Didn't matter- he just had the gift of communicating.
Most of the great orators of our generation who I would include on my favorite list are all pastors. But outside of the church, who did you think brings it the best?
