If you are a fan of Senator Obama’s speeches, you must have wondered, who his speech writer was. The NY Times did a story on the lead speech writer, a 26-year old (!!), Mr. Jon Favreau. Very impressive indeed. This is just one more sign that an Obama Presidency is bound to bring hordes of young, talented people to the forefront of American politics.
But for now, Obama has to win South Carolina, convince John Edwards to quit and endorse him, and beef up his chances for super Tuesday in the big states. As of now, this seems like an uphill battle!
Check out one of Obama’s recent speeches. Notice how he starts of slowly and gathers steam as he progresses.
