The quote is good. But the delivery is even better.
And that has one writer comparing her to one of the GOP’s rising stars. Slate’s Dave Weigel writes: “Not only is Warren better on the stump than [defeated, and much maligned, Massachusetts Senate candidate Martha] Coakley, she’s starting to star in viral videos of the Chris Christie style.”
Decoder recently wrote about Christie’s raw emotional appeal. We wrote it then but we’ll say it again now: it’s sometimes amazing how little passion politicians use in discussing topics of massive national importance.
When a pol is able to put on a performance like Christie or Warren (or, once upon a time, Barack Obama), they not only convince their audience but inspire them. And, as Obama proved, inspiration can be a powerful political force.
