Okay, I will use these words in a sentence:

Barack Obama is the classy and charismatic leader of the free world, the soon-to-be / nex President of The United States of America.  A person with charisma possesses a personal magic of leadership, arousing special popular loyalty or enthusiasm and a special magnetic charm or appeal. 

barack-obama-leader-of-the-free-world

I gotta say, that even though the election is over, the results are in, it’s a done deal…  This guy has something going on that most of the rest of simply don’t.

Now you try it.  Use “classy” and/or “charismatic” in a sentence using the comment boxes below.
