CNN's Handwriting Analysis

Wolf Blitzer and David Gergen, watching Obama sign official papers yesterday in the Oval Office:

BLITZER: And if you've ever seen Barack Obama's signature, he is very precise when he writes, and it's — and if he writes, he scribbles some words before he signs an autograph, for example. His penmanship, I must say — and I've seen it — is really excellent.

GERGEN: He's got a little flourish to that signature.

BLITZER: He has a great flourish. And it's very impressive.
