Changefest ’09 – what’s changed?

I listened to Barack Obama’s speech on the radio. He sounded like someone confident with speaking.
When I listened to George W Bush, I didn’t get the same feeling.

The daily show clip above made the issue clearer for me.
did george bush not get a fair chance because he did not sound as confident as an orator
I don’t think he ever had a chance.

I wonder though how i judge others.
do i listen more to how things are said rather than what is said?

time to reflect I guess.
