Obama Relies Less on Teleprompter

President Obama "is weaning himself off his teleprompter," The Hill observes.

"At recent campaign events in Pennsylvania, Virginia and again Monday in Ohio, Obama spoke to crowds in high school gymnasiums and at crowded outdoor events without his teleprompter, instead using written notes. The difference is dramatic. Instead of turning in his characteristic manner from right to left and back again, reading from the two sloping, clear-plastic planes of his teleprompter, Obama has glanced down at pages in a binder on his podium."

A senior Obama official said the lack of teleprompters has "less to do with image and more to do with upping the tempo" at campaign events.
