Wag the Blog: On Speeches and Substance
To honor Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and Barack Obama (Ill.) spoke at two of the high profile African-American churches in the country on Sunday.
Clinton addressed the Abyssinian Church in Harlem; Obama took to the pulpit at King's home church -- Ebenezer Baptist -- in Atlanta.
And, thanks to the miracle of video on demand, we can compare the two speeches -- although we attended neither. The two speeches are somewhat lengthy -- especially Obama's -- but both are worth your time as they illustrate the similarities and contrasts between the two candidates' messages.
For today's Wag the Blog question, we want to know -- based solely on the two speeches provided below -- who more effectively conveyed his or her message. Try to be as objective as possible. If you are a Clinton supporter, really watch the two speeches (or at least parts of both) and try to make a fair-minded judgment of which candidate made their case best. Same goes for the Obama supporters in The Fix community.
The most thoughtful/insightful comments will be excerpted in a post of their own later this week.
