Al Sharpton is THE man. :afro: I know people say Obama is a good speaker but he doesn't have the BOOM/oomph that the voice of Al Sharpton has (I think his chubbyness probably adds to the BOOM in his voice that skinnier people don't have). Whether you like Michael Jackson or not is another matter but that speech Sharpy done is one of the greatest I have ever seen with my bare eyes. The delivery and words used were on an absolutely orgasmic level. :coma: The way he just stands there and lets the words flow. So beautiful, so inspiring, and so natural. I wish I could speak like the guy.

Speech of the decade? Do you think there are better public speakers out there (feel free to post links)? I don't think so. :no:

The subject matter brings it down a few notches, in my opinion.

Its good, but all the man does is shout, and that brings it down.

Ah - I found his pauses quite strange, actually. Pauses in weird places.

"People that.....felt"
"Michael never let the world.......turn him " etc.


Not saying he's a bad public speaker, though. Even if he is crediting Michael Jackson with a little too much, imo

Hitler was a good public speaker IMO. A complete w*nker, but his speeches were good.

Yeah, his speeches were fantastic. I actually prefer his final speech to the "I have a dream" one, but yeah..

Margaret Thatcher had her moments, and I was really impressed with David Cameron's impromptu speech - was that a Tory Conference? I can't remember.

My old history teacher used to bum Hitler's speeches. He even made us Nazi salute at the end of one of his lessons. I'm not even kidding.

Not the greatest, but Gordon Brown is actually a talented orator. His speeches in the UK are rubbish, but the one he gave to the US Congress was really quite impressive.

In general I find public speakers who are black have a presence about them.

At the MJ memorial the congresswomen was impressive too.

But Al Sharpton is in a league of his own.

Martin Luther Kings son and daughter were good too.

I guess it comes from the countless speeches they listen to at Church.
