As the stimulus bill was debated it became very clear that President Obama really has horrendous communicators at his disposal. I know the media lined up many more Republicans to fill our airwaves with, so that wasn't very helpful.

Republicans trotted out person after the person who could articulate their misguided views. We were stuck with Claire McCaskill and her twittering as almost the lone voice from the left to carry his message -- and that's not good enough.

I think Barney Frank does a good job too, and of course the great Paul Krugman, but he's not part of the administration. So who else is left?

President Obama can't be the only voice that reaches out to Americans to inform them on these complicated issues.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi aren't good at media presentation. To me the bench is very weak, so who is left? There has to be a member of Congress who has the public speaking skills to do the job. This is important if Obama wants to have an easier time getting his message across to the nation. He can't have national speeches every week.

Please list who you think should start going out and becoming on-air speakers for the Obama Administration.
