Usually and some of Obamas speeches, I will notice him pausing some or stuttering with phrases like um or uh. This could be to gather thoughts or could be a bad habit, but to me this is distracting as a public speaker. However, in this speech from the inauguration, Barack Obama was flawless as I did not notice him alter the pace of his speaking or pause to gather thoughts.
