Obama means well, but............

Is it just Radio Haney or have other observers observed the overuse of the "I" word in Obama's speeches rather than the Mandelian "we".

His body language is equally unsettling in that he appears to be looking down his nose at everyone. Sure, he is tall. Sure, he is smart. But neither of these qualities should distance him from us down here.

If he expects people to embrace his ideas he will need to be less pedantic and professorial. The road ahead is long, a softer pair of shoes will ease the journey.
