I love and respect Tom McClintock but a man who is unable to effectively speak on television and radio is not suited to being an effective governor of a state that is attuned to the public image. In short, he mumbles a lot and his lips barely move when he speaks and it can be rather distracting at times. I wish he’d invest in voice and image coaching because it’d be awesome to see him in a higher office.

I like plain speaking, too. Sarah Palin, for instance, manages this without mumbling. I’m just saying that after so many years in politics that Tom owes it to us to take the time to improve his speaking skills so he can get elected to a higher office.

I’m on his side here.

McClintock is not a natural orator but he is a great communicator because he actually has something to say:
