Mark Zuckerberg is honing his political skills in a cross-country trip in what some believe is a way to prepare for a run for office.

The Facebook founder and CEO is meeting with average Americans "to learn about a part of the world he's been isolated from since at least his Harvard days," writes David McCabe, a tech writer for the political news website Axios.

"Zuckerberg has undoubtedly become a stronger public speaker over the years, especially at industry or engineer-focused events. He's even given a talk in Chinese, a language he learned as a personal project."

McCabe also says it hasn't always been a smooth ride for Zuckerberg, such as the "brusque" interaction he had with a reporter in South Bend, Indiana.

[The journalist] "asked him how his visit is going. Zuckerberg clammed up. 'It's good, but we're not doing interviews,' he said curtly, before offering just a little more on this trip," McCabe writes. "It's the kind of impromptu, impossible-to-rehearse press interaction … Zuckerberg hasn't yet mastered."
