Ten Word Answer

In The West Wing, the president's adviseres fret about '10 word answers' that manage to sum up a candidates position succinctly in a neat little sound-bite for the morning's papers. I noticed that Barak Obama, when asked at a black media members convention about his position with regard to reparations, used a beautifully crafted exaple of the species:

“The best reparations we can provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who are unemployed.”*

Undoubtedly pre-packaged and re-heated, but I think it works.


*If anyone mentions that it's actually 20 words, I'm going to thump them
... you've been warned!
