A Matter Of Opinion

Letter: Obama not tough enough

About this Obama thing: It reminds me of when women were fainting and squealing over Elvis and every time Frank Sinatra would sing. I don’t think the people are thinking about the welfare of the country. (…)

Politics is a dirty business and Obama is too nice. Like Carter, he will find it is easier to say you will make changes than to really do it. We will have eight years of a man you liked. Maybe we need someone tough and not liked as much. Everyone has vilified Hillary for years, never talking about the good things that she has done. But if an Obama is what people want, that will finish our country down the drain. — Frances L. Shank, Chewelah, Wash.

Do you think likeability and the appropriate toughness are mutually exclusive in a candidate?
