Unfortunately, some people aren't personable enough to get elected. Alan Keyes is kind of the same way.

Unfortunately the talent today has to be a complete picture or they can never raise to the top.

Or what is worse, their facade has to be the best and substance can lag behind by a large measure.

IF people would get more interested in politics and read the issues to understand what is happening, people like McClintock wouldn't have to win the beauty portion of the political races in order to serve and you'd get better people in more often.

That is a sad commentary... and good luck getting people to actually study issues, they want the issues spoon-fed to them in 10 second soundbites.

The day elections became “beauty contests”, the terrorists won.

We all end up paying for it as a result.
