The Gubernatorial Debate; Barrett Was In Charge

This was a televised exchange, so demeanor counted as much or more than words.

Barrett looked and sounded more organized, confident and informed.

In a word, reassuring, like the seasoned pilot whom you want to see sitting in the captain's seat in the cockpit when you board the plane.

Walker looked more like the junior, second officer.

Walker talked faster, though, like a glib politician. Do you get points for that?

I was surprised at how inarticulate he is, and at how nervous he sounded.

Probably a function of trying to remember all the talking points, rather than thinking on his feet, then responding.
