Response to political necessity
I do see the argument that Obama's oratory techniques are very similar to those of preachers, and other distrustworthy people that have attained positions of power - appeal to emotion, use small & positive sounding catch-phrases, keep the rhetoric rather generic that doesn't really commit to anything in particular.
I don't see him as one of those evil types, but more like a positive influence like Abraham Lincoln or Winston Churchill. But only time will tell, and I'm reserving my assessment until we see him in action. Meanwhile, I'll remain positive and optimistic about the stated intentions.
