  •  he explained that he didn't mean that (0+ / 0-)

    as it came out.  In fact, I think he used that little exchange in a debate. He listed it as one of the things he regrets that he said during this campaign.
     He said something about meaning to say just "you're likeable, Hillary" and shouldn't have added the "enough".  He's not perfect---but pretty good.
     And I agree with the diary in that for 90% of voters, likeability is the whole ball game.
     And everyone I know runs off screaming "NO!" if you ask if they would ever consider voting for Hillary.
     I remember sitting in a waiting room right after the 04 election and started talking with a couple of strangers who brought up the election.  After finding out they voted for Bush despite the fact that they didn't like this and this and this about him, including war, I asked why they didn't vote for Kerry.  They said, "We just didn't like him.  He was too fancy for us.  We just didn't like him".
