The Great Communicators?
Barack Obama, presidentLast year Drew Westen, a professor of psychiatry and psychology at Emory University, wrote a piece for The New York Times about President Obama's lack of passion. Essentially, Westen argued that President Obama had lost his rhetorical flair — the rhetorical flair that landed him in the spotlight at the 2004 DNC convention and the rhetorical flair that got him into the White House.

Today we check in with Westen for his take on how President Obama and Mitt Romney are doing when it comes to effectively communicating with voters.

Guests:
  Drew Westen, professor of psychiatry and Psychology at Emory university and author of "The Political Brain"
  Dorie Clark, president of Clark Strategic Communications
