Analyzing Obama's handwriting

The Guardian hired a handwriting expert to analyze samples from several famous people, in a blind study, including Obama. Here's what he said about Obama's handwriting:
    Oh dear. I try to find something individual and likable in everyone's handwriting, but this is a bit sad and even a little babyish. Those fat loops on the L are not very mature, nor the way it all squashes into the middle zone, with not much in the way of ascenders or descenders. It just stops dead on the line. If you got a love letter written in this hand, you would probably think of Jane Austen's Mr Collins: the author would do, in efficient, practical terms, but they are not going to be romantically exciting.
