54%. Huh. No way I could have perceived that difference. Guess I just hate listening to the guy.

I just ran it and got very close to the same result. I would have bet a lot that wasn't the case. Guess I need to find a hat.

Hey wait a minute. What if Barry is using much bigger words? Smaller word count, more time.

Need to break out the video and stopwatch.

Well, characters are counted, so you can see who used bigger words. But also, one may talk faster than the other and can get more words in less time.

Oops. Didn't do apples/apples. Once again:

Obama: 5.57 characters/word
McCain: 5.49 characters/word

When I was about 1/3 through the task of copy/pasting text, McCain has way more words that Obama. But then it evened out, and then tilted to Obama.
