Poise

Today I watched the April 23, 2012 episode of Q and A

The show I watched yesterday had only two guests.

Today's show had only one.

Bob Brown.

That guy had what I felt was missing from both Cardinal Pell and Richard Dawkins—poise and the ability to explain things well.

Then again...I will admit, Bob Brown was kind of preaching to my choir. I'm sure that makes a difference. 

He seems so gentle and sweet, though.  And I love his smile.

I wonder, though, if he'd have been less impressive if there were other panelists?  Maybe he had more poise because he was less rushed and less interrupted.

In the near future, I'll be watching other single-panelist episodes. It will be interesting to compare their performance with Brown's.
