scharrison's blog Comments Wow. Not a strong speaker. This is the first time I've heard him. I hope he does better on future outings. Odd ... he seemed to do very well at the SEC meeting Perhaps an off day .. or less prepared ??? I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you? I don't think it matters if I don't think it matters if he is a strong speaker or not, though I thought it sounded fine. The media isn't going to be airing any more that a few seconds of it if any.......unless he slips up and says something off the cuff that turns out to be contrroversial. So I think it is much more important that he has a well thought out script that he sticks to, even if it sounds a little clippy. Most of the coverage the press conferences will get will be from the print media so I think he accomplished what he needed to here. I'm a moderate Democrat. If he can overcome his tax If he can overcome his tax problems and win back the General Assembly then he should run for President. However, I think the opposition party will use his tax problems to "eviscerate" him. You might want to check out the comments on this thread ... I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you? Randy Voller gives a great speech just listen to this one he gave in accepting the gavel of the State Democratic Party last month.
