a president who has both a sense of humor and the seriousness that the job entails. Bill Clinton pulled that off marvelously by both playing the saxophone on the Arsenio Hall show and having substantive articulated positions on policy.

Yes, I acknowledge that its tougher for a female candidate to thread that needle, but it makes it imperative that it be done correctly. I just think she overdid the laugh thing. Even Cory Booker kept a relatively straight face while he told his "No" joke. Good comedians don't laugh at their own jokes.

If I'm wrong, we'll see her poll numbers rise again.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
