No comment on that. I’m trying to win Florida!
It’s officially over…
Meet the next President of the United States.
If he wins: will Barack Obama be the American president with the most beautiful speaking voice in recorded history? Only Jimmy Carter comes close (If you like his southern twang). Ronald Reagan had a great speaking voice as actor and governor, although too staccato, and too trembling in his White House years. Clinton was gruff, the Bushes whiny, Nixon to nasal-y, Kennedy too high-pitched. Obama’s voice is perfect in tone, timber and pronunciation. I want to him to read Americans a bed-time story every night.
I’m sure if you go back further there’s someone comparable. FDR, maybe? Wilson?
George Washington had a lovely singing voice.
cinemascopian might be onto something. In this age of immediate information why not Obama do a 5 minute state of the union every sunday night. Friendly, informational, and American.
The only thing you can say about his voice is that he stammers a bit. But on the other hand, it’s a sign he’s thinking the words he is saying and not merely reciting talking points by rote.
Shit, even if you think both candidates are the same (and I certainly don’t), I’d think you’d vote Obama just so you don’t have to listen to McCain’s hoarse whistle (or worse yet, Palin’s nasal drone) for the next four years.
