    After reading both endorsement articles, Michael bloomberg ultimately persuaded me because of his establishment of strong ethos and pathos. Throughout his speech, he constantly used ethos to demonstrate his credibility as a democrat, republican, and even a business man. Bloomberg passionately speaks about his work in the senate and states, “I know Hillary Clinton can do all this, because I saw it firsthand when she was in the Senate.” This sentence founded a strong sense of credibility for…

Eve, in my opinion was probably the easiest to manipulate and that is why Satan was delighted to come upon her first rather than Adam. Eve, is just like any other woman, so it is quite easy to distinguish what one needs to do to get on her good graces. Due to it being Eve, Satan tempted her with his evil offer by using flattery on her. Apparently flattery will get you anywhere.…
