Integrity, brains–these have nothing to do with who Americans vote for.
We are stupid and bored and yes, corrupt.
We vote for the most charismatic, good-looking candidate. We vote for someone who will amuse us when we turn on the TV.
I hate Donald Trump, but in small doses and from a distance I suspect he has charm, and his crazy is entertaining–however briefly.
We need charisma and charm in a decent progressive candidate.
What say you Mr. Clooney?
