We are Barack Obama? — 2 Comments

  1. I think it has more to do with people’s reactions to “I” statements. “I” am running for president sounds sort of conceited, whereas “we” typically denotes a more humble stance. People like humility and humble. Even in presidents.I mean, I can’t speak for everyone obviously, but I can speak for we 🙂

  2. To me it sounded like he was saying “we” when it was something going wrong, like he was trying to avoid taking direct responsibility for it – like it was “the campaign staff” and not him.doug
