This is just a thought, of course, but I would like to submit to everyone following the politics of the day that justbecause one gives a good speech doesn’t mean a hill a beans about how one is able to lead.
That goes for Sarah Palin as well as Barack Obama.
So, my advice is that anyone who listens to a speech and is impressed, do some research and find out about the person. Look at their history, their votes, their experience. Then, make a judgment call.
A good speech is a prerequisite for consideration. It does not get you my vote.
