I do think we have two separate definitions of charisma or being charismatic. As for Hillary, I think everyone knew exactly how she would have governed. To some that would have made her a great president, to others just a plain old elitist, aloof, know it all A-hole.
To probably most Americans, a majority of them anyway, presidential elections are nothing more than beauty contests which the candidates trying to manipulate the unwashed masses perspectives of them. In the end, most folks end up voting for the candidate they dislike the least. In today's day and age, very few actually vote for a candidate anymore, just against the other guy.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
