Effective discourse

Thank you, John Kerry, for your clear, concise, very effective discourse during the first presidential debate. You had the facts, you didn’t stray the course, you kept your cool, you spoke in calm, measured tones. In short, you knew what you were doing.

How refreshing to listen to a leader who can speak in complete sentences and has brains enough to realize that the world’s problems can not be defined in black and white, but come in multi-layered shades, and that responding to the complexities of the issues as they evolve is not “flip-flopping”. This country desperately needs your help.
