I just don’t get it. I don’t know what she stands for, where she wants to go, what she wants to do, what she thinks is wrong, how to fix it. I didn’t perceive any leadership in the Congress…am I wrong? what issues has she been out in front on? what bills? what hearings? what confirmations? a book? a rousing speech? I don’t think she’s very likeable or charismatic. I don’t think she is a leader, frankly, of the magnitude that is needed. Can she get out there on the TeeVee and sell sacrifice to combat global warming? are you kidding? Can she stop the militarism? no sign of that… Will she stand up to the magichristians? ha, you jest. Will it help to have Bill leering over her shoulder? not for me.
A couple of years ago she seemed like she was becoming a good public speaker. But it seems like that fizzled out. She’s just a downer. Now, there is a lot in this country to be concerned about; but a president can’t be a downer. It’s not that she really seems angry all the time…but she just doesn’t have a positive message. When she tries to get all inspirational she sounds really fake. She doesn’t appeal to the left and she certainly doesn’t appeal to the right, but if she were a great orator she could capture enough of the center to win. But she isn’t, and she can’t. Besides, the center is now about 5% of the vote.
I don’t think she can win the nomination, and if she does, I don’t think she can win the election.
