#2 She is a poor example of a woman, and human, in general.

#3 But a good example of "The New Democrat".

#4 Indeed. Omarosa is a much better example.

#5 Obama had a better crew of 'Handlers'? Or did Obama's career as a soldier in the Illinois Mob Democratic Machine give him much needed 'discipline' when speaking in public (know when you should Lie about what you really believe)...

#6 She is a good example of how silly the trend is to just grab up young untried politicians and launch them into the national spotlight before they've been seasoned. Think George W, Palin, and even Trump to some extent.

The problem is our current pile of politicians are unworthy giving folks few other options.

#7 Not like crooked old ones who know the ropes are any bargain.

#8 ...Think George W, Palin, and even Trump to some extent.

I don't think it really matters at this point. The signs were already with the savaging that were given to earlier Republican politicos regardless of the length of their careers. Spiro Agnew, Dan Quayle, or Dick Cheney were all savaged by an increasingly monolithic 'Opposition Press' that has become a surrogate arm of the Democratic Party.

#9 That is true. The search for folks with no track record to hold against them resulted from that. Not a great trend.

#10 remember Trump ran as just Trump until the GOP courted him. he's certainly NOT a politician thank God
