Intelligence without charisma can come off as arrogant - which didn't help Gore during the Bush/Gore debate

The best at doing intelligence without arrogance was Bill Clinton. Love his quote about bringing the corn to the hawgs.

Unfortunately his style is so different from Obama's that I don't think Obama could emulate Clinton's gift.

Obama is just not a natural at debating. I think he just needs to memorize some sound bite zingers and unleash them at the right time. It wouldn't be difficult - Romney presents a steady stream of outrageously soft targets. Even if Obama misses or skips over one, he can be sure he'll have another within 30 seconds.
