Charismatic, popular Clinton + Hotlooker Newsom = thumbs up for Brown!

Bill Clinton rallied for Brown and Newsom at my school the other night.

Am I wrong, or does Gavin Newsom NOT look like he's in his 40s?! All the ladies probably think he's all hot and will vote just based on that, but I wouldn't blame them. Right. -_-

I mean, you know, Bill Clinton is pretty darn charismatic AND he must have been a hottie as well when he was a bit more youthful!

Clinton and Gavin both had full heads of hair at the rally. Brown... was like... almost hairless.

Case in point: Many voters out there are going to vote based on charisma and image!!! That said, it's in Brown's best interest to have Newsom on the ballot and Billy rooting for them both.

Darn, uneducated voters!!! It's the reason why Reagan and Schwarzenegger were elected in the first place! -_-

I'm not saying Brown and Newsom are not good candidates. I'm merely trying to point out that many voters are influenced by factors other than what are on the party and candidate platforms.

By the way, why is it that Bill Clinton comes to UCLA while USC gets a visit from Barack Obama????

Don't you think the Bruins should have gotten them both? =T

Clearly, Obama goes to USC to compensate for the fact that they are the lesser university. This brings balance to the universe.

LOL, totally, we bruins are better...LOL

But seriously, you have to realize that lately politics has changed, and will continue to change. Now, thanks to hollywood, people will rally along side the more appealing candidate because they can and because they appeal to their aesthetics. Its the way life seems to work now. Sure its not ideal, its not even productive, but politics is a game and whoever plays it best wins.

Moreover, people don't just vote on looks. Many people, if you have realized, vote on single issues like abortion, religion, etc. Political candidates do what they have to win the vote and if they have to appeal to the the younger generation through looks, they will do it. politics is not about the whole platform anymore, no one really looks that closely at it. Lately politics is about putting a single issue that you know will get you votes. Ultimately, politicians have a responsibility, though it is not always to their constituents. Their responsibility is to whoever financially backs them. Like many have said so before, the main priority of politicians is to get reelected or to get elected and fulfill their primary self interests. So yes, there are many ignorant voters around, but its not just their ignorance that perpetuate the system, the politicians just know how to work it in their favor.

*Read as though I'm giving a motivating, high-energy speech*

Well! If voters weren't so ignorant, politicians would be more deterred to exploit such avenues of vulnerability!

If voters thought and voted more judiciously, elected officials would have a greater incentive to campaign with substance! It all comes down to the voters and personal responsibility! Rah rah rahh!! *woooo!* :D

yeah, but thats only if voters get their heads out of their asses and realize that there is more to a platform than just a single issue. I'm not saying you are wrong, in fact, i completely agree with you, I'm just saying its a vicious cycle. Surprise surprise, we actually agree on something like this....
