Campaign Advice from Dick Cavett (NYTimes)

In a blog entry from last week, Dick Cavett gives tips to Obama, Clinton, and McCain on comedy, public speaking, and image.

While Cavett himself provides concrete advice interspersed with some comic zingers, the comments posted by readers are fascinating.

In between the fawning admiration for Cavett, there's a wide response to the speaking styles of all the candidates, additional tips and tricks for public speaking, and several challenges to the notion that competence in public speaking is any indication of fitness for the job of POTUS.
