View Diary: Marco Rubio compares himself to Hillary ... Hillary wins (58 comments)

  •  Rubio has "boy" written all over him (10+ / 0-)

    He's surprisingly politically immature and horribly inept and blew his televised political national moment by looking fearful and sucking down water.  

    He's an oddly whiny politician who manages to not engender confidence in his ability to handle the 2am world war 3 phone call.  You just get the sense that he would have a magnified My Pet Goat moment in national crisis that lasts 4 years.  

    Hillary Clinton is an adult woman, a seasoned politician, who has the equilibrium, brains, and sense to make mincemeat out of Little Boy Blue.

    "Out of Many, One Nation." This is the great promise of these United States of America -9.75 -6.87

    •  Nobody thought chrisco could win, either, until he (3+ / 0-)

      did.  Never underestimate professional handlers.  They're the make-up, lighting, and hair stylists of politics and they can make a grotesque look and sound presentable.

      If you don't have a seat at the table, you're probably on the menu.

    •  Clinton can also laugh at herself (2+ / 0-)

      and enjoy, for example, the Clinton-in-shades tweets. She seems to have a good idea of both her strengths and her vulnerabilities. That's maturity, and it's a definite plus.

      On the other hand, anyone has to be a bit egotistical and delusional to think they are up to handling the job of President, especially with a hostile Congress.

      •  One of her best personal qualities. (2+ / 0-)

        And I love the way she turn an ageist/sexist comment around on the speaker so easily, too.  

        When Mitch McConnell, several years her senior, made that Golden Girls comment, I loved her answer:

        "You know, that was a very popular, long-running TV series!"
