    Default Tell Me the Best Voice of American President Inaugural Address * in Your Mind

    The voice I like most is that of George W. Bush in his first inaugural address. It sounds deep, clear and strong in a poetically rhythmic way. I've heard of the voice of Clinton, Kennedy, Nixon, Obama, Reagan etc. (among them, Reagan's is excellent as well), but none of them is better than Bush's in my view.
    The link for the voice can be found here:
    ???__
    Ironically, I had once improperly cited a word from his public speech, in which he said the reason that he did not articulate because he then suffered foot-and-mouth disease. I thought "his voice sucks." At that time I actually never heard of Bush's voice. I now know how humble is this man's manner.
    Tell me the best voice of a president in your mind. And, don't forget post the link to the voice record.

    Kennedy, Reagan and Clinton were all good orators in different ways IMO.

    Thank you for replying Tdol.

    PS. I'm not sure whether I have used the word "articulate" properly there. I meant it as "speak clearly".
