Day 40 —- My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary and not against Trump.

She’s the class egghead.

Hillary suffers from seriously low likeability numbers. She possesses very little of Bill’s natural charm and warmth. Yet, in article after article, the people close to her describe her as warm and caring.

She stinks in a crowd, but blossoms one-on-one. Some of her low likeability numbers – I believe – are a function of gender, e.g., the RNC chairman telling her to smile more (I’m attaching some thoughts on that notion that most women have heard all their lives.). While it would be lovely if she possessed both wonkiness and people skills, if I have to choose between the two, I choose wonky.
