Was watching a clip on The NewsHour of President Obama’s gathering in Florida today, and was struck by how like an evangelist he was. It doesn’t come across so much in the words, below, but in the mannerisms.
HENRIETTA HUGHES: The housing authority has two years’ waiting lists. And we need something more than the vehicle and the parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom. Please help.
BARACK OBAMA: OK, Ms. Hughes, well, we’re going to do everything we can to help you, but there are a lot of people like you. We’re going to do everything we can.
