  1. When Obama was running for president I (frequently) heard news reports which indicated that Obama’s use of language was correlated with more “deceitfulness” (e.g. usage of “we” rather than “I” and certain usages of tense and adjectives) than Clinton. I rather doubt the credibility of the science behind that claim, actually, but if it *were* true and we agree that Obama is charismatic, then there’s at least one data point that contradicts this.

    Also – surely you can be honest and despicable.
