Abstract

To many voters, the words make the man. Many voters interpret the personality projected by a politician's speech as the candidate's real self. Since the age of Plato, speakers have manipulated this projected personality, called ethical image by rhetoricians, to favorably display good sense, good moral character, and good will towards the audience.
