But when you become President the problems somehow seem, well, very embarassing. I'd recommend reading from a script. Scripts don't run ahead on you.
I don't know, does reading from a teleprompter about everything tend to lessen the credibility of your strong convictions about the message..just a little?
This little nugget from Harry Reid's new book via Yahoo.com:
Reid, D-Nev., writes: "'That speech was phenomenal, Barack,' I told him. And I will never forget his response. Without the barest hint of braggadocio or conceit, and with what I would describe as deep humility, he said quietly: 'I have a gift, Harry.'"
Provided the telepromter is working correctly.
