"Perhaps as important as the ideas, which are at the heart of the Paul campaign, is the man himself. Ron Paul is not a great orator, though he does well enough in debates and interviews. But his low-key manner may have its own appeal. He doesn't shout or gesticulate, but he doesn't back away from what he believes. He presents radical ideas in a low-key, unthreatening manner, and people seem to sense a certain unyielding integrity. Whether they agree with him or not, people sense that he really believes what he is saying rather than delivering the latest focus-group-tested message."
