McCain’s speaking talents captured in a nutshell, or rather in a mayonnaise jar that’s been left in the sun
From a piece, “How the candidates’ speaking styles play,” in the July 11 Christian Science Monitor, by Ariel Sabar:
McCain excels at the give-and-take with voters in town meetings and other intimate settings, where his unvarnished musings and grasp of policy detail play well. As far back as 2000, he branded his campaign bus the Straight Talk Express because of the free-wheeling gab sessions with journalists aboard, a rarity in an age of heavily managed access to presidential candidates.
