QW 010412 “Mark & David-Dec.30 2011”

I finally gave up numbering the “Learning from Mark & David” series and recreated the title as “Mark & David- Month/Date/Year”. This makes a great shift that I’ll no longer need to search every QW piece of the series and number my new post. By the way, I didn’t know the new video of Analysis was uploaded on the website until today, which, after all, is good for me. My focus has been on the celebration of New Year 2012 and my newly-launched speaking project for the past few days. I wouldn’t have felt like QWing on Mark & David anyway, I suppose. Here’re the words and phrases that I’d like to learn and use in my speaking and writing.
http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/politics/july-dec11/shieldsbrooks_12-30.html

1) Mark: I think the point David made is one worth repeating. And that is,…
I think it’s a smart way to follow up what the previous speaker has said and help make a transition of the speaker sound smooth to the audience.

2) David: People think Gingrich's campaign might have legs or a Rick Perry campaign might have legs, but I don't think they're too worried about Santorum and Paul having legs.
“have legs” means to continue to be of interest. For example, “This latest scandal has legs – you'll probably still be reading about it in a year's time.” ( Reference: The Free Dictionary http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/have+legs )

3) David: So I wouldn't totally want to count him (= Newt Gingrich) out, but I certainly wouldn't bet money on it.

This is my favorite part of Dec. 30 video. I can use the sentence when I won’t rule out a candidate of any sort not being able to negate its potential, but I’ll never place full confidence in it. What a cool expression.
