Obama’s Powerful Words

“At the core of the campaign is the fact that words matter. Central to the idea of his candidacy is the idea that a speech can change the world. You can’t have a campaign that has that notion at its core and then point to other people’s words and say, those don’t really matter.”

Republican Strategist Todd Harris is talking about Barack Obama’s emphasis on oratory and that he needs to address the racial remarks said by his pastor. Can words change the world? In this age of instant around-the-world news, are they more important than reality? If the words and reality don’t match, would we know? With so many campaign leaders practised in “spin,” I hear message points more than heartfelt words. Do you believe all the carefully crafted sentences you’re hearing in this presidential race?
