Style vs. Substance

Here's the bottom line:

When our country elects an individual to govern our nation, what criteria does one consider?

From some of the feedback I hear after these debates, you'd think that because B. Obama is such an "eloquent" and "smooth" talker, he is the best choice.

Let me say one thing: style is not what's introduced into bills and charisma is not the stuff that decisions are made of.

Whatever substance a candidate has, that is what will factor into how they run a country.

Big Smiles Biden and Land O' Lakes Obama may make for impressive fashion designers, if style is your thing, but I'm thinking issues, policy, judgement, and character are more of an important matter when the direction of a country is at stake.
