During my walk today I pondered the question myself….
He’s some of things I ran thru….
As anyone who has watched the Trump show for the past six months KNOWS?
Donald Trump is an unguided missile ….
That we KNOW….
But most people do NOT acknowledge that Trump is also a performer made for todays social media market….
Donald Trump is also smart in his own way even though he sound dumb ….
He has been smart enough to say REALLY crazy assed shit to get media ATTENTION…..Attention IS attention folks….
The Media LOVES it!
A LOT of Americans follow their politics on TV…..
TV media features tight and quick slices of VISUAL images…..
Trump has mastered that….
Hillary Clinton on the other hand is diametrically the opposite of Donald Trump…
Although she is actually younger that Trump?
She is light years out of the current social media and TV media way of doing things…
She does NOT perform before large crowds which the media tends to report as Large support for a candidate…
She put off campaigning as long as she could because she doesn’t really like it…
She has had trouble with her email , before she set up her current twitter, facebook and other media operations…
But most of ALL?
Hillary Clinton is a wonk….
That will be GREAT for her as President….
But THAT is NOT how you get elected to be President in America….
To get to the White House you HAVE TO SELL people stuff that will be hard to deliver….
It is no coincidence that Sanders and Trump have strong supporters…
BOTH men have been out there going around selling things that they will NEVER be able to come thru on…
It’s Bull Shit…
But American’s eat it up every four years….
This Dog is Happy that Bernie Sanders ran against Hillary Clinton in the primaries…
In doing so?
He has made her switch from policy to selling people things that she probably will find hard to deliver….
Trump has been doing that for a quite a while and no matter WHO he hires to help him in his campaign ?…He will continue to be who he is…Fats and Loose on the truth….But LOUD about it….
It is this Dog’s hope that Hillary Clinton begins to shed more of her reluctance to get out there and be more visible ….
I know she has the several decades of stuff dropped her to make her cautious about things….
But in the next 6 months it will NOT be enough to FOLLOW behind Donald Trump, counting on the pollsters to tell her she’s gonna win…
She MUST step up to the plate and find a way to lead….
Because in the end?
Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton WILL be about Leadership….
For most of 2016, Hillary Clinton’s advisers were divided into two camps about whom they wanted to run against. One faction of her Brooklyn-based operation touted Ted Cruz as the ultimate opponent — a conventional, and widely disliked, candidate who would have made the day-to-day of the general election a more predictable clash between Clinton’s center-left politics and an unusually right-wing nominee.
They also predicted that a battle against Cruz would be less ugly than one with Trump. But a second group have been hoping for Trump to emerge from the GOP confusion, spoiling for a fight against a candidate who might be unpredictable but has higher negatives than any politician in public life.
But one of the drawbacks of running against Trump, Clinton allies said, is how a woman who struggles to be spontaneous on the campaign trail will fare against a Republican nominee with zero impulse control.
Trump wins at rapid response because he doesn’t convene a conference call of advisers before offering his opinion about an opponent or events in the world: He does the responding off the cuff, by himself, the only candidate operating at the high speed of social media. He’s also extremely comfortable in the give and take of news conferences, which Clinton studiously avoids.
Compared to Trump’s free-floating approach, Clinton’s campaign is cautious by design, bogged down with multiple layers of approvals before issuing any statement or even tweet from the campaign. “Trump can go anywhere, the guy’s relentless and a brawler,” said Stone. “She’s so poll-tested. She’s calling him a ‘loose cannon.’ Did that test better than ‘right-wing extremist’? It’s so ridiculously canned, while Trump is a free spirit.”
Democratic allies and donors said they are worried about how Clinton, who wants to battle Trump aggressively, will keep up. They also fear complacency among Democrats who view Trump as someone who can’t build a winning coalition — especially because Clinton looks so dominant in national and battleground state polls and the Electoral College map appears daunting for Trump…..
