Obama's Teachers?

Motherpie has an interesting post trying to figure out why Barack Obama may be the slight frontrunner ahead of Hillary Clinton (this Monday before super Tuesday):

Is it Aristotle's rhetoric (as vetted by George Lakoff)? Is this man who would be above women (and that slighter of some feminists) really Obama's teacher(s)?

Obama does speak to the heart. Maybe Aspasia or someone else taught him. And look, Oprah, Caroline Kennedy, Maria Shriver and other contemporary women orators are backing him. And Motherpie does get us wondering whether Barack's a Mac and Hillary's a PC.

Welcome from Santa Fe, Motherpie. You also got a link over at Girl with Pen. My son almost went to College at Santa Fe (but got a scholarship on the east coast). TCU's a great school, as your daughter probably tells you. and FW with The Original and Joe T. Garcia on the patio too.
