Who’s Rambling Now?

Someone who met Bill Clinton told me, “I rambled. He probably thought I was an idiot.”

No. Bill Clinton wanted you to ramble. He wanted to make you the most important person in the room for two minutes. He listened for a nugget of information–a story–he could use in his next speech.

If you’re running for office remember: the most important person in every room is the voter you’re talking with. Let her ramble.
