Dull Competence Vs. Poetry?
Added 1989 days ago in
Clinton talked about issue after issue in almost mind-numbing detail and answered question after question in an event that lasted more than an hour and a half.
Both drew large crowds. But Clinton's crowd was much smaller at the end of her speech than at the beginning.
Hundreds of people trickled and then streamed out while Clinton was still talking. But she went on and on as if she did not mind. And maybe she didn't.
"You campaign in poetry, but you govern in prose," Clinton said, quoting Mario Cuomo.
In other words: Dull is good. Dull is a sign of competence.
But can dull get you elected? Especially when your chief rival is selling poetry?
"I applaud his incredible ability to make a speech that really leaves people inspired," Clinton said of Obama after her speech. "My point is that when the cameras disappear and you're there in the Oval Office having to make tough decisions, I believe I am better prepared and ready to lead our country."
Both campaigns have now reduced their themes to single word.
Obama has a sign that says: Hope.
Clinton has a sign that says: Ready.
