    comfortable with people have been Democrats, at least in my memory. Carter, Clinton, and Obama can go most anywhere in the world and be mobbed by folks of all ages who adore them.

    They see the world's people as if they were family members and people treat them accordingly, even when they don't like US policies. Remember the pizza guy who hugged Obama and picked him up?

    The Repubs, on the other hand, tend to be these awkward doofuses or aloof corporate suits who need managers and handlers around regular people. People around the world end up hating them.

    Can you imagine Nixon, Ford, either Bush or god help them, McCain or Romney sitting with random school kids this way? Romney's frozen zombie smile would make them cry.

    I don't recall Bush showing any real emotion or caring over any tragic event, including Katrina and 9-11. Everything was political fodder.

    Non-profit single payer health care. Next question?
