HOW TO GIVE A BETTER SPEECH THAN OBAMA and change your world - (Obama's communication challenge) Darren Kelly, Kellcomm, Blog - Day 51


Mitt Romney’s Republican primary success in New Hampshire has many people believing there will be a change in the White House soon. However, it might not be Romney, and we must remember that Democrat Obama lost New Hampshire to Hilary Clinton in 2008, and he still got his party’s nomination. Romney still hasn’t persuaded enough people in his own party that he is the man to lead them, so perhaps Obama should worry about someone stronger entering the race. When Margaret Thatcher was ousted from power, many people expected Michael Heseltine to become Prime Minister until an unassuming John Major entered the contest. Politics is a funny old game.

Obama is obviously worried about re-election and rumours in Washington suggest that Hilary Clinton may replace Joe Biden as Vice President. Clinton’s approval rating in the US is higher than Obama’s and even Oprah Winfrey’s. In 2008, the media loved the fresh faced and inspiring Obama, and Clinton was painted as old school and out of touch. Things have changed so don’t be surprised if before Election Day, Obama decides that the US needs its first female Vice President. It would certainly help his chances of re-election. Politics is a funny old game!

Obama’s communication skills will face their toughest challenge in 2012. He must communicate in a way so that people listen, understand and believe his message. He must also ensure they remember that message on Election Day.

Tomorrow, I will discuss why Robert F. Kennedy is my favourite US speaker of all time. I will reveal what the modern leader must learn from Kennedy's example.

Take care,
