Not since Nixon v Kennedy have we seen so much discussion about body language and temperament as in the Obama v McCain contest.
The recent Time Magazine cover on temperment in President and candidates reinforces the points. Is it a smile or a condescending grim? Is it anger or righteous indignation. Many of our friends and acquaintances have talked about who seems more “presidential” than policy differences.
What have you been picking up? Is it the American flag lapel pin? Is it the age v. youth? Before we shift the discussion to what the next President must do in the first 90 days, tell us what you make of the “temperament” issue.
