Props to Obama for Using Props

To paraphrase another president: there he goes again!

The Obama administration putting a prop to good use, this time upping the ante by having the CIC himself wield it.

So glad to see it. I’ve wondered in the past why Obama and other chief executives don’t make better use of three-dimensional visuals in their speeches and presentations.

And maybe it’s the venue that makes the difference.¬†This was the White House’s weekly address,¬†which prior administrations did via radio instead of video. So it’s good they occasionally try to take advantage of the visual medium.

I still say it could be done in more formal venues like televised Oval Office addresses, but this is a good start.
