I was listening to NPR yesterday on the way home and the host was interviewing Barbara Boxer (D)CA. (paraphrased) The host asked, "We've heard the Democrats say the Republicans are handling everything terribly, but we haven't heard much about what the Democrats would do differently?" Boxer replied, "Well, I'll tell you. The Republicans have handled everything terribly..." and proceeded to wail on the Republicans. The host had to ask again, and got the same response. The third time the host asked, Boxer got all exasperated and said, "I'm trying to tell you..." did a short invective on the Republicans and *finally* said what the Democrats would do differently. Boxer is, I believe, the minority leader in the House. If she's such a poor communicator how in the world will she effectively run the House (if won) while fighting off the Republicans? She sounded like a moron who couldn't answer a simple question and someone who was more interested in attacking her oponents than putting forward her own position. Is short, she sounded like a weak leader. Even if we have a chance in November, do we have a chance?
