SOS-- Help Me

I don't get it. I watched Ma'ambo's entire speech last night and I thought she bombed. The moment her speech ended, nothing but praise. Here in the office, she is all anyone is talking about. I just don't get it. What is so special about her? Even though seemingly nobody I work with is voting McCain, everyone still seemed so impressed by her.
For starters, she did not write the speech nor did she deliver it particularly well. She has no charisma, no pizazz, no glaring intellect. I just don't get it. This is how I felt after 9/11/01 when 95% of the country thought Bush was suddenly wise and competent. I was at a lose then as I am today. I thought to myself, " How could otherwise rational people buy into this shit?"
What is her talent?
What is her skill set?
Even if one does not like Obama or his policies, it is undeniable that he is both charismatic and a brilliant speaker. What does she have that I don't see? Somebody please help me out! I want to understand and I don't.
I heard somebody mention that she is the Republican Ann Richards. I heard someone else say she is the next Reagan. I never liked Reagan, but again, I understand why so many people do.
While I am pulling myself together, chew on this.

Unfortunately the truth waivers our public's decisions very little.

I'm with you. I didn't see it, but the few other times I've seen her speak, I certainly wasn't watching anything good, let alone special.

I don't see it either.

I simply cannot take this woman seriously.

But don't you remember when GW was everybodys best friend? We never saw it then either...
