Barack Obama at Ease in New Hampshire

This from the Boston Herald, who were covering the trips of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire over the weekend and Monday. It's not a bad thing when you are capturing the minds of the media.

"As for Barack Obama: The hackneyed phrase “rock star” doesn’t begin to capture it. Rarely will you see someone so at ease with a crowd. At the University of New Hampshire he came across more as the most popular professor on campus. He even talks like it. Long, nuanced replies. That mellifluous voice.

This should not be a surprise: He was a law professor at the University of Chicago - ironically, America’s top conservative school - for 10 years before going into politics.

After Obama finished speaking he made his way through the crowd - shaking hands, grinning, joking, laughing - toward the door."
