    I have huge respect for Bloomberg and I can see the current national appeal of someone who actually knows how to run something. I just don't know how much of a connection he inspires in the average Joe or Jane. Doesn't have the GWB "I'd love to have a beer with him" factor.

    I don't want someone who'd have a beer with me running the country. Think we should probably aspire to a higher standard.

    Good because President Trump doesn't drink.


    Obama's down to earth personality got him a lot of votes, too. The "I'd have a beer with that guy" has been more appealing to most Americans during elections. Looking back, its usually that guy that wins.

    Losers have been Hilary, Romney, McCain, Perot. LOL.

    Trump also doesn't think.

    The guy you want to have a beer with is the guy who says "Who knew healthcare was so complicated?"

    I think the next election we'll see an overcorrection to that trend, considering the complete embarrassment Trump has been on the "presidential" scale.

    Obama ran on and then continuously pursued the "guy you'd want to have a beer with" angle. The "beer summit" was, what, 8 months into his presidency? He brewed a beer in the white house, had a beer with Bourdain, etc. etc. It's part of his appeal.

    I guess, to Pete's point, he bungled the ADA...but that's not b/c he's a beer guy lol

    The only thing about the ADA he bungled was letting the Republicans massacre it.
