  •  He was damn good at the DNC (1+ / 0-)

    It's difficult to be sufficiently relaxed to deliver an engaging speech effectively while running for president. Because Kerry has been through all that, I hope he'll be as convincing when giving Secy-of-State speeches as he was at the DNC.

    There's a book of Warren Christopher speeches published by Stanford U Press in 1998 (one review is at www.sfgate.com/books/article/Warren-Christopher-s-Speeches-a-Swim-Through-3001749.php; it's much like another review I read at the time). If James Baker had been a Democrat and Christopher a Republican in November 2000, Gore would have been president.
