Deep Thoughts with Bob Shrum


Wonder why Al Gore and John Kerry lost to an charismatic incompetent like George W. Bush? They got this kind of advice from Bob Shrum, offered today to Hillary Clinton in advance of the Democratic debate:

She needs to have a script, that takes her a little off script, that makes here look a little spontaneous. That gives a little energy and life to her presentation. She could say something off-beat, for example...It would make her look less programmed.

Scripted spontaneity! That's the ticket.

Jesus. Is it any wonder Democrats come off like Robocrats?
