I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and, doggone it, people like me!

In a post titled Electable, Mannion comes to a conclusion about which he’s decidedly unenthusiastic: Hillary is “the one.”

Dammit to hell; Hillary can’t get us out of The Matrix! But that’s the thing about electability—being electable doesn’t mean you’re necessarily a great leader. See: Bush, George W.

Suffice it to say, I don’t think Mannion’s wrong, although I wish he were. Feingold comes across very well on television to me; Mr. Shakes recently heard some people, who agree with Feingold’s politics, saying he strikes them as a “used car salesman.” This proves (once again), if nothing else, that I experience the world in a minor key, and I’ve never managed to hear the melody everyone else seems to. I always thought Gore was funny and likable, too, so what do I know?

Then again, who knows what catastrophes the bumbling Bush will manage to create in the next two and a half years. The terrain may yet change.

And I don’t think Hillary would be a terrible president, just not the one I’d want. It seems unfair we’d have to settle after eight years of this mess. But no one ever said life was fair, eh?
