Speaking with connectors

While listening to On Point this evening, I set a goal: speak more fluidly in public than Barak Obama.  He seems like a nice guy, and should he run for President of the United States, he’ll be someone to consider.  But in the ten minutes I heard him answering callers’ questions, he used so many connector/filler words, like “uh,” “so,” and “and.” I’m sure he’s better at prepared speeches.

Perhaps I should have set my public speaking goals higher?
