No contest in skills of oratory

After watching Obama's typically impressive performance for his "the Democratic primary is finally over" speech, I checked out the beginning of a clip of John McCain's speech from the same night. Watch for a few minutes and see how painful it is when he stops to smile (presumably at the insistence of one of his handlers). As some slate blogger said, "he barely knows how to read a teleprompter".
