The important stuff

Posted By on Sun, Jun 8, 2008 at 8:29 AM

Forget about it today, Brummett says, and consider John McCain's "creepy forced smile." And whether Bill has been acting strange.

Fair enough. Personal characteristics count in presidential campaigns. McCain's style will shape many voters' opinions.

Clinton? Looks like he may be a non-factor this year (though it's clear the usual suspects are ready to blame the Clintons if Obama loses -- or if it rains tomorrow). My observation is that Clinton has always had a temper. In gubernatorial days there weren't ninety-leven cable channels and blogs around to roll tape of the episodes in an endless loop to the point that you'd think Bill Clinton is red-faced and finger-wagging 24 hours a day. As president, he generally was in a more controlled bubble than he's been on the campaign trail this year. Also more relevant then.
