The Greatest Communicator
WASHINGTON – If Ronald Wilson Reagan was “the great communicator”…
William Jefferson Clinton is the greatest communicator.
Making the case is what he does. Making an emotional connection with people is how he does it. The political power of persuasion of William Jefferson Clinton has been his most reliable tool. But the talent he has for taking raw information and massaging it to make his point is where the magic lies.
In his talk, President Bill Clinton answered the question posed by Brian Williams earlier in the night, when he asked about his relationship with President Obama.
“It’s quite good, actually,” Clinton said of their relationship. “It’s candid, it’s open. We haven’t been close friends a long time or anything like that, but he knows that I support him.” [The Hill]
After last night, everyone knows Bill Clinton supports him. In fact, if Pres. Obama wins reelection, it is likely on the inspiration William Jefferson Clinton left with everyone watching, who now finally know what it means to be a Democrat.
We’re all in this together.
