There are a couple of reasons that are readily apparent to me:
- She's got a voice like nails on a blackboard. I'm talking speaking voice, not politics. Someone should have hired a vocal coach for her long ago.
- She projects a sense of her own moral and intellectual superiority. No one likes to be spoken down to. Nobody.
- She projects a sense that she knows what's best for me as an individual, and that I'm too stupid to have the right to make my own choices. You are not the boss of me, lady.
- She's simply not warm and fuzzy.
- So far, her platform has been about everyone else's negatives, not about her own positives. Does anybody really know what she stands for?
It's easier to forgive Mr. Nice than it is to forgive Miss Superiority 2007.
As for me, the candidates I'd most like to see are Bill Richardson on the Democratic side and Fred Thompson on the Republican side. Now that would be a horse race!
