David,

I believe it's his real speech, with a few composite moments.  It
sounds like other interviews I've heard -- and different from most
singing voice examples in my head.  You're not alone in making that
comment about the voice.     Feel free to suggest post topics or
additional videos to review for the blog in the comments.
