Being able to make a good presentation for the cameras saying what you're told will garner support (whether you actually believe what you're saying or not) doesn't make someone a good candidate for any political office. I doubt many republicans believe at this point that just because Obama made wonderful speeches and presented himself extremely well when he ran for president believes he's a good president or has done well for the people of our nation. Aiken has zero experience and only knows what his handlers tell about being a congressman. He's an actor...a musician. No other credits to him. We've had other actors and public icons that became representatives and even one that became a president. There's a mountain of difference between them and those folks. But, for you, Gary...he's a democrat first and foremost and he's also a client. I mean, we couldn't expect anything here from you other than what you're posting.
Ellmers isn't my favorite politician, I've said that a number of times here. But, replacing her with the likes of a Clay Aiken is ludicrous. If he were to be elected, all he'd be is a puppet for the democratic left...absolutely nothing more. We don't need any more of those folks.
Yep, Aiken has some name recognition. I disagree with your beliefs that everyone knows who he is. I didn't follow the TV show where he supposedly became "famous" so I had to look him up when I saw his name. Many...MANY folks will have to do that. And, when they see he's a great entertainer, you just gotta know they're gonna scratch their heads wondering WFT (to use your language here) is he doing running for congress in North Carolina.
If he were to win, it will be a backlash against Ellmers for whatever reason they have and absolutely and totally NOT because he'd make a good congressman.
