I despise his religion even more.
BUT, you can see his passion when he talks. There is no lying within him. He is a simple man with humble upbringings. He has been made into a world player and he has a little ego problem, but it is manageable.
The guy would have thrived if he would have been born in the USA, most likely a President (at least a candidate) after a short stint in Congress.

I guess that would make him exceptionally bright, to be able to raise up from the working class in an area such as Iran.
I find myself to usually be a good judge of character as well, and aside from the obvious slips in judgement (there must be some basis for such rediculous claims... then again, I thought Tom Cruise was intelligent as well until he became a Scientologist. Guess it just goes to show that even extremely intelligent people can have bad judgement), I see an intriguing person.
I have not watched the video yet (and cannot until I come home from work), but I expect that it will only re-enforce my opinion.
On the flip side (because I have to play devil's advocate with myself as well as everyone else), it was said that Hitler was extremely charismatic as well. Charisma can fool even the most empathic among us for a short time.
