When Cicero speaks, they say, "How well he speaks".
When Demosthenes speaks, they say, "Let us march".
--Adlai Stevenson, David Ogilvy, et al.
Which prospective candidates would you liken more to Cicero and which would you liken more to Demosthenes?
What factors in a candidate would cause you to "march"?
What fires up one supporter may be entirely different from what motivates another and will depend on factors and diverse as a person's desire to be led and their views on what the country's needs are.
Some are moved by a candidate's background and ability to connect with them. Others consider intellect and competence to be key. Yet others may be more influenced by specific policy stances.
Once campaign season is here, the answers may become clearer as candidates declare, as they engage in debates, make speeches, work the crowds and otherwise put themselves out there for all to see and compare.
Who will influence the undecideds? Who will pull supporters from other camps? Whose supporters will be the most effective in convincing others?
The dynamics of this election cycle will be fascinating to observe.
