What does the ad say about the potential administration? Depends on who wins. If Trump can't face Megan Kelley, he certainly can't face Putin. Hillary, on the other hand, has a lot more to say than simply barking. She even uses adult language, the sort that the Trumpeteers find so difficult to understand.
"Adult language" or not, Hillary is so shrill she is not listenable. Nor is she likable. I don't think that is going to help her in the general.
Keep thinking that. The Republicans are still going to have to come up with an electable candidate if they plan to regain the White House.
Maybe in 2020.
I didn't say she couldn't win, just that her shrill, unlikable personality isn't likely to help her. I hold no illusions for a once great nation who elected an absolute evil piece of **** like B.O. Twice.
I do not think there has been a likable candidate for Republicans since Reagan, and for Democrats since Kennedy. Which I guess makes sense since neither one would be electable in today's political climate and with today's establishment behavior.
I actually think Bernie Sanders is pretty likable, but that's just me.
And it doesn't mean he's electable, or that any of his ideas are likely to pass Congress should he be elected.
We risk a real argumentative conversation here on why Sanders is liked in comparison to say Kennedy.
If you really look at what both have said in context they are no where near each other ideologically, but both have (had) a D behind their names.
Sanders is likable because he capitalizes well on a fairly recent political phenomenon when it comes to social class warfare, he is literally proving the 'old adage' of exchanging treasury promises for a vote from those likely to benefit from a certain spending.
Kennedy was fairly likable at the time (all things considered, it was not a landslide... something like 120K votes separated Kennedy from Nixon in 1960) because of his attitude on dealing with the USSR, his speaking about nationalism and patriotism, and his ideology on economics and taxation.
Ironically, what Sanders is saying today about economics is completely adversarial in just about every regard to what Kennedy spoke about. Conditions are of course very different today than they were in 1960 both socially and economically, but we cannot discount that Kennedy was more or less pragmatic with economic maters while Sanders and his brand of "Democratic Socialism" is a complete throttle attempt to deal with oligarchical and crony-capitalism in this nation.
That is mainly why I said what I did, if Kennedy ran today using a similar tone he did for the 1960 campaign he might be labeled a Republican moderate or Independent.
I have no trouble "liking" Hillary Clinton.
For the people who do...okay, that's the way it goes some time.
I think she is far and away a better candidate for president than anyone the opposition party is offering.
She will get to sit at her desk about 15 feet where her husband got a BJ from some intern.
